Abstract A 51-year-old previously healthy man developed endocarditis with low grade fever, aortic insufficiently and multiple arterial emboli. An atypical strain of Pasteurella multocida was isolated from each of 3 consecutive blood cultures. Protracted treatment with high doses of penicillin G was necessary to eradicate the infection. Following resection of the damaged aortic valves and implantation of a valve prosthesis, the patient recovered. P. multocida should be regarded as one of the possible causes of subacute bacterial endocarditis.
