Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A woman is described who suffered from multiple episodes of Streptococcus viridans endocarditis over a decade. The possible mechanisms for recurrence are discussed and the past literature on recurrent endocarditis is reviewed. In addition, the patient developed fever and eosinophilia in response to penicillin V, while tolerating penicillin G without incident.
