Abstract:

Infective Endocarditis (IE) caused by Raoultella planticola is extremely rare. We reported a 41-yearold male with a history of chronic kidney disease diagnosed with Raoultella planticola infective IE. The patient initially underwent the mitral valve replacement for Staphylococcus aureus infective IE. But he developed a high fever after surgery, followed by perivalvular abscess and perivalvular leakage. A second mitral valve replacement was performed and Raoultella planticola was found in his blood cultures. Eventually, he recovered by antibiotic treatment based on the susceptibility test. This case alerts clinicians to be aware of Raoultella planticola infection in immunocompromised patients undergoing cardiac surgery.
