PMID:  12553304     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 13-year-old girl with surgically corrected congenital heart disease presented with a 3-day history of fever 1 month after piercing her navel. An echocardiogram demonstrated a vegetation within her right ventricle to pulmonary artery conduit, and several blood cultures were repeatedly positive for Staphylococcus aureus. Surgical replacement of the conduit in conjunction with intravenous antibiotic therapy was curative.
