The pathogen rarely cause prosthetic joint infection. We report the first case, to our knowledge, of a prosthetic joint infection in a patient underwent liver transplantation caused by this pathogen. Pasteurella multocida is a high pace growing pathogen. Physician should raise awareness with related history especially in patients with immunosuppressive status.
