Abstract

We report the case of a patient with acute pulmonary homograft endocarditis secondary to Streptococcus agalactiae from a catbite. He had undergone a Ross procedure nineteen years earlier. In view of unremitting infection with large pulmonary trunk and right pulmonary artery vegetations, the patient underwent successful pulmonary vegetectomy and homograft replacement.
