Özet

A case of Abiotrophia defectiva-caused infective endocarditis is described. The patient was successfully treated with penicillin combined with gentamicin. Due to the fastidious nature of the agent, there is a need for special media for isolation and moreover, there is a need for a future development of susceptibility assays applicable to the organism.
