Authors: Aoyama Y, Oba Y, Hoshide S, Arai Y, Komori T, Kabutoya T, Kario K Abstract A 68-year-old Japanese man was admitted to our hospital with right eye pain, a sudden worsening of his eyesight, and a fever. He was diagnosed with endogenous bacterial endophthalmitis due to infectious endocarditis (IE) of Group B Streptococcus (GBS) on the day of admission. He recovered systemically, but his right eye became phthisical only with the administration of antibiotics. We conducted a review of the reported cases of IE caused by GBS complicated with endogenous bacterial endophthalmitis. IE should be considered when an un...

Authors: Pan JH Abstract Simultaneous left and right-sided native valve infective endocarditis (IE) is rare. Staphylococcus aureus was the predominant organism for bilateral IE. Shunt diseases are common risk factors of both-sided IE. Streptococcus anginosus (S. anginosus) is usually associated with pyogenic infections, but rarely a cause of IE. Here we present an extremely rare case of simultaneous left and right-sided native valve IE affecting the mitral and tricuspid valves caused by S. anginosus in an adult patient that has not been reported in the literature previously, particularly without the most frequent p...

We report 2 cases of MA-related pure ASDH in the course of infective endocarditis (IE) without history of head trauma, hypertension or coagulopathy.Case 1: A 54-year-old man presented with a 10-day history of headache, fever. At admission neurologic examination and Brain-CT were normal. Blood cultures showed Streptococcus bovis. MRI 5 days later revealed ischemic spots and minime ASDH over the right convexity. Cerebral angiography, revealed a 3 mm saccular aneurysm at the bifurcation of a distal branch of the right posterior cerebral artery (PCA).Case 2: A 42-year-old man presented with a 8-day history of fever, and wo...
