oa Southern African Journal of Infectious Diseases - A rare case of Brucella abortus endocarditis in South Africa : case report
Brucella endocarditis is a rare condition which occurs as a focal complication of chronic brucellosis. We report a case of Brucella abortus endocarditisin a 21 year old male with a prosthetic aortic heart valve. Due to the high mortality of Brucella endocarditis, it is essential for clinicians to maintain a high index of suspicion in patients at risk for brucellosis who present with infective endocarditis.
