Umar Hayat MD, Saba Afroz MD


Abstract: Corynebacterium diphtheria is the well-known cause of pharyngitis and other upper respiratory tract infections. With the advent of efficient vaccination system, the incidence of these infections has been significantly reduced in developed countries. However, in the recent past, non-toxegenic strains of corynebactrium diphtheriae has been associated with a variety of systemic infections especially in immune-compromised. They may cause infective endocarditis, septic arthritis, bacteremia etc. In this case we are going to present a case of right sided endocarditis caused by a relatively less virulent Corynebacterium diphtheriae species.
