Abstract

Infective Endocarditis (IE) has high morbidity and mortality. To date, in addition to classic Gram-positive pathogens were isolated exigent Gram negative bacteria responsible of endocarditis as A. baumannii, A. lwoffii, C. burnetii, Bartonella, Chlamydia and Legionella. We report our experience about the isolation of Salmonella enterica phagetype 35 (PT35) from blood heart cavity of a 74-year-old woman after having consumed a portion of baked pasta bought in a rotisserie. Cardiovascular infections due to Salmonella enterica are infrequently reported, so their clinical features, prognosis, and optimal treatment are not completely known. To the best of our knowledge, after careful evaluation of existing literature, this is the first report of endocarditis due S. enterica PT 35.
