Eikenella corrodens is an uncommon cause of bacterial endocarditis. In the 11 reported cases in the literature, the disease was associated with predisposing factors and was clinically indolent or subacute. A case is reported which in contrast to the reported literature was acute in onset with severe heart failure, requiring urgent valve replacement.
