Prosthetic valve endocarditis caused by Salmonella enteritidis.

Abstract

Until now, only 12 cases of prosthetic valve endocarditis caused by Salmonella spp. have been reported in the English literature. High complication and mortality rates, a fulminant course and the requirement for early surgical intervention deserve special attention in this kind of infective endocarditis. A new case of Salmonella prosthetic valve endocarditis complicated by sepsis-induced cholestasis and a literature review are presented in this report.
