We report a case of bacterial endocarditis due to Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans in a man with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy complicated by a mycotic aneurysm and thrombosis of the right common iliac artery. The patient was successfully treated with a combination of ampicillin and gentamicin, but was left with residual mitral incompetence.
