Özet

We report a case of infective endocarditis developing after pedicure in a 36-y-old female. Methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) infective endocarditis was diagnosed. Even aggressive therapy was ineffective. To our knowledge, we report the first case of infective endocarditis secondary to pedicure in the literature.
