Abstract

We report the first case of Engyodontium album bioprosthetic valve endocarditis in a 44-year-old male with a history of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. There is only one other report of Engyodontium album as a human pathogen. The present case supports the increased incidence of fungal endocarditis especially in patients receiving immunotherapy.
