Abstract

Kingella kingae is part of the Haemophilus spp., Aggregatibacter spp., Cardiobacterium hominis, Eikenella corrodens and Kingella spp. organisms that are known to cause bacterial endocarditis. Evidence suggests it is also a common pharyngeal colonizer in children <2 years of age. We reviewed the literature to determine common complications of K. kingae infective endocarditis in children.
