Abstract: A case of Candida parapsilosis involving the left wrist in an immunocompromised host is described. The arthritis followed an indolent course, present for about 1 year before specific treatment was started. There was no response to 2-month ketoconazole therapy, and an open drainage had to be performed. In addition to crystal arthropathies and the more common infectious arthritides, one should be aware of arthritides with opportunistic microorganisms in immune compromised hemodialysis patients.
