A case of endocarditis with cerebral embolism successfully treated with daptomycin
AbstractA young girl was admitted for fever, headache, paresthesia of the hands, involuntary blinking of the left eye and aphasia. Imaging revealed mycotic cerebral aneurysms and finally infective endocarditis was diagnosed and successfully treated with daptomycin. She had a history of mitral prolapse and she had undergone dental procedures some months before without any antibiotic prophylaxis, according to the 2007 guidelines of the American Heart Association.
