Abstract Granulicatella elegans is a fastidious organism that is rarely implicated as a cause of infective endocarditis. Here, we describe a patient with mitral valve prolapse who developed G. elegans endocarditis. The organism was isolated from blood cultures and the patient had mitral valvuloplasty and repair, and completed a course of 6 weeks of intravenous antibiotics with no sequela.
