Fig. 2. Seven days after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, the patient had knee pain with fever and chills. Seven days after symptom development, the patient visited the outpatient clinic and arthroscopic debridement was performed. However, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection persisted despite treatment. (A) Therefore, 29 days after the ACL reconstruction, arthroscopic debridement was performed again with removal of the graft and hardware. (B) After infection control, revision ACL reconstruction with bone-patellar tendon-bone allograft was performed. At the 26-month follow-up, the patient recovered nearly all activity and motion, and instability was not evaluated.
