Enterococcus raffinosus is scarcely found in clinical samples and even less frequently as etiologic agent of endocarditis. We are herein presenting one case of mitral prosthetic-valve endocarditis in a 77-y-o male due to a vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus raffinosus isolate, successfully treated with 6 weeks of linezolid, and a two-year follow up.
