Abstract

Studies reporting S. warneri in infective endocarditis (IE) are rare. We presented a 72-year-old woman with native mitral valve S. warneri IE associated with spondylitis and cerebellar infarction. Physicians should be wary of IE and disseminated lesions when blood cultures reveal S. warneri, especially in elderlies with valvular heart disease.
