Six patients with homograft aortic valves who developed endocarditis due to infection with or were found to have serum precipitins and high titres of agglutinins to several species of . In 14 of 62 other patients undergoing open-heart surgery, a similar serological pattern developed in the 2nd wk after operation, suggesting the possibility that otherwise undetected candida infection was present. A further 13 of the 62 patients developed antibodies to a single species of . Such patients, especially those with homograft valve replacements, should clearly be watched carefully for infective complications.
