Streptococcus gordonii is a rare cause of infective endocarditis (IE) known for its ability to colonize and damage cardiac valves. Moreover, it is known that complicated aneurism with intracardiac fistula is an infrequent finding in IE, reported in1.6% of patients. We report the case of a 58 year old male patient with IE infected with Streptococcus gordonii and complicated with an aneurism and mitral valve fistula.
