Abstract

Native valve endocarditis due to Staphylococcus capitis is uncommon and is usually managed conservatively with good outcome. Of the nine previously reported cases there has been only one mortality. We report a case of native aortic valve endocarditis due to S capitis in an elderly diabetic that had a fatal outcome despite appropriate therapy with antibiotics. A review the literature is also presented.
