Abstract

We retrospectively examined medical records of 87 patients with bacteraemia caused by members of the HACEK group (, , , spp., and spp.) to determine whether endocarditis was present, as defined by the Duke criteria. The overall positive predictive value (PPV) of HACEK bacteraemia for endocarditis was 60 %. The PPV varied with different HACEK species from 0 % () to 100 % ().
