Infective endocarditis caused by Pasteurella multocida is a rare disease with a high mortality rate. Most patients have a previous history of animal contact. The most common comorbid condition is a chronic liver disease, which is attributable to the high mortality rate. Over half of the patients who survived the disease had required valve replacement surgery. We report the case of a 70-year-old man diagnosed with prosthetic valve endocarditis caused by Pasteurella multocida and complicated with multiple peripheral arterial embolism. He had neither any underlying immunocompromising diseases nor previous history of animal contact. He was successfully cured after antibiotic therapy for 6 weeks without valve replacement surgery.
Key Words: Pasteurella multocida, Embolism, Heart valve prosthesis, Endocarditis
