Endocarditis due to Actinomyces neuii is a rare disease, with only 14 reported cases. Recently, A. neuii was added to the list of species implicated in endocarditis of native valves. We now report the first case of prosthetic valve endocarditis and the first successful control of endocarditis caused by this organism without surgical intervention.
