Abstract A rare case of prosthetic mitral valve endocarditis due to Corynebacterium striatum, treated medically, is reported.

We herewith report the first case of successful medical treatment of prosthetic mitral valve endocarditis due to C. striatum, emphasizing the complicated clinical course and reviewing the literature regarding diagnosis and therapeutical approach.
