Abstract

Endocarditis caused by Bartonella strains has been increasingly reported. While a few sporadic case reports associated with B. henselae were published in Turkey, no endocarditis cases caused by Bartonella spp. have been reported yet. Herein, a case of first B. quintana endocarditis in Turkey, diagnosed using molecular methods, was presented.
