Abstract

A 59-year-old man had culture-negative endocarditis (clinical evidence compatible with endocarditis and histopathologic evidence of a recent episode of endocarditis) and serology compatible with a recent episode of Chlamydia pneumoniae infection. The conclusion was that this episode of culture-negative endocarditis was probably due to C. pneumoniae.
