Arthroplasty Infection by Priopionibacterium granulosum Treated With Reimplantation Despite Ongoing Purulent-Appearing Fluid Collection
Journal of Arthroplasty, 05/04/2012Nystrom LM et al.

P granulosum is a low–virulence but highly–inflammatory organism. It seems to produce a large fluid collection that may require multiple debridements.
