Infective endocarditis with Fusobacterium necrophorum (F necrophorum) as the sole pathogen has been reported only once previously in an infant. We describe herein a case of F necrophorum endocarditis in a 20-year-old, previously healthy man. This is the first reported case of monomicrobial F necrophorum endocarditis in an adult.
