Abstract

Use of amphotericin B-impregnated bone cement in combination with systemic antifungals for the treatment of coccidioidal osteomyelitis offers the potential for sustained local concentrations of drug at the site of the infection. Amphotericin B levels in bone of up to 5.1 μg/g have been demonstrated 4 months after placement of bone cement.
