We believe the following case is of clinical interest, not only because of the rarity of the occurrence of the infecting organism in endocarditis, but also because of the therapeutic problems involved. Of 921 well authenticated cases of bacterial endocarditis chosen at random from the American and British literature, 30 cases,1-17 or 3.26 per cent, were due to enterococci.
It is of interest to note that Christie,18 in reporting 269 cases of subacute bacterial endocarditis, failed to incriminate the enterococcus as the etiologic agent in a single case. MacNeal et al.15 cite the work of Lloyd-Jones, who makes no mention
