Abstract :
Endocarditis is a rare complication of salmonellosis.The most frequently observed species is Salmonella typhi.Endocarditis caused by Salmonella paratyphi is extremely rare with only three previous cases documented in the medical literature.
We report a case of endocarditis caused by Salmonella paratyphi in an otherwise healthy young patient, with full recovery after appropriate antibiotic treatment.
