Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A patient developed a fungal pacemaker infection with Scedosporium apiospermum following a series of pacemaker manipulations. Despite percutaneous removal of the pacemaker system and subsequent operative extraction of the atrial thrombus, his course was complicated by persistent sepsis, pulmonary septic emboli and bilateral frontal lobe infarction, following which treatment was withdrawn.
