Description

Clostridial endocarditis is rare. We describe, to our knowledge, the first case of Clostridium innocuum endocarditis. The fatal case involved the tricuspid and pulmonary valves and was associated with multiple pulmonary emboli. We review the literature, which suggests the varied presentations and outcomes of clostridial endocarditis. Penicillin is the treatment of choice for this disease.
