Scand J Infect Dis. 2007;39(2):180-3. doi: 10.1080/00365540600802007.


Actinomyces endocarditis is very rare. At present the only Actinomyces species identified causing endocarditis are A. israelii, A. bovis, A. viscosus, A. pyogenes, A. meyeri and A. funkei. We here report the first case of endocarditis caused by Actinomyces neuii.
