Vibrio fetus endocarditis occurred in a patient with systemic lupus erythematosus receiving azathoprin and prednisone. Blood cultures required 14 days to become positive. The fastidious growth requirement of this organism is reviewed because lack of appreciation of these may result in failure to make the diagnosis. This is the first reported case of Vibrio fetus endocarditis occurring in the setting of a connective tissue disorder and immunosuppressive therapy.
