PMID:  22374286     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Streptococcus constellatus endocarditis is associated with systemic embolism and frequently with a poor prognosis. We describe the first case reported in the literature of infective endocarditis by penicillin-resistant S. constellatus causing both mitral and aortic valve regurgitation, treated successfully with double-valve replacement.
