Mycoplasma genitalium Endocarditis in Prosthetic Aortic Valve

Published inEmerging infectious diseases, vol. 29, no. 10, p. 2164-2166
Publication date2023-10

We report a case of Mycoplasma genitalium endocarditis in a prosthetic heart valve of a woman who sought care in Switzerland for acute aortic valve dysfunction 3 years after valve replacement. This unusual manifestation of infection with this bacterium was diagnosed using broad-range PCR despite suspicion of a mechanical disinsertion.
