Abstract Human pasteurellosis is, in general, a locoregional infection due to contact with an animal. Systemic infections are rare and endocarditis is exceptionally described. The authors report two new cases of endocarditis due to Pasteurella spp, they then review 29 other published cases. Pasteurella spp. endocarditis presents as an acute form in 64\% of cases and affects the aortic as often as the mitral valves. Contact with an animal is documented in 65\% of cases. Pasteurella multocida is the most frequent species in this infection. The total death rate is 40\% and can reach 57\% of cases in case of immunodepression. The bad prognosis of this infection, justifies an early diagnosis and a rapid and adapted but not yet consensual medicosurgical treatment.
