Abstract

Bacterial endocarditis due to Lactococcus garvieae is extremely unusual, and may actually be underreported due to its morphologic and biochemical similarities with enterococci. Only three cases have been reported in the medical literature, and all involved prosthetic valves. We report a case of native valve bacterial endocarditis caused by L. garvieae.
