Abstract

A 21-year-old collegiate wrestler was admitted to the hospital suffering from acute left lower quadrant abdominal pain. Blood cultures taken at the time of admission showed Staphylococcus aureus. The results of a computed tomography scan and a two-dimensional echocardiogram were consistent with a diagnosis of infective endocarditis. Therapy consisted of a 14-day hospitalization, a 28-day course of parenteral antibiotics, and subsequent follow-up visits. He returned to full participation in wrestling after 15 weeks.
