Abstract

We describe a case of pacemaker endocarditis due to Candida albicans in a patient who responded favorably to combined surgical and antifungal therapy. Only five cases of candidal pacemaker endocarditis have been reported previously. We review these five cases and discuss the clinical presentation and therapy for this disease in comparison with candidal prosthetic valve endocarditis.
