There have been numerous reports of the treatment of gonorrheal infections with fever therapy during the past few years. These reports have dealt mainly with cases of gonorrheal arthritis, though gonorrheal pelvic inflammatory disease and other local manifestations of the infection also have been treated successfully by heat therapy. We wish to report a case of gonorrheal endocarditis treated by fever therapy unsuccessfully, and also to report two cases of gonorrheal endocarditis not previously reported. Freund and Anderson reported the recovery of a case of gonorrheal endocarditis treated by hyperpyrexia at the First International Conference on Fever Therapy in March
