In some cases, unusual microorganisms may be identified as the causative agents in bone and joint infections. Pantoea agglomerans (P. agglomerans), an environmental pathogen, is rarely found in human infections but can be encountered, particularly in injuries related to plants. In this case report, we aimed to present a 77-year-old female patient with a late prosthetic joint infection caused by P. agglomerans.
