A 71-year-old man was admitted with complaints of high fever and lumbago. Echocardiography showed vegetation about 16×7 mm in size attached to the tricuspid valve. Magnetic resonance imaging showed osteomyelitis. As serial echocardiography showed the progression of valvular lesion despite antibiotic therapy, the patient underwent endoscopic removal of intervertebral disc 1st, and then tricuspid valve plasty was performed 3 days later. As of the last follow-up observation at 3 years, the patient has been doing well.
