Abstract

We report what is believed to be the first case of late-onset prosthetic valve endocarditis caused by in a case of blood culture-negative endocarditis. The objective of this report is to emphasize the use of a broad-range PCR technique for bacterial 16S rRNA genes in identifying the causative pathogen, thus enabling targeted antimicrobial treatment.
