• A patient with Yersinia enterocolitica endocarditis was seen with bacteremia, valvular vegetation, new heart murmur, and septic embolism. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of Y enterocolitica infectious endocarditis and is yet another clinical manifestation of disease produced by this organism.
