Abstract

Infections due to Coxiella burnetii, the causative organism of Q fever, are extremely rare in North America. Endocarditis due to the organism has an unusual presentation and poses echocardiographic and laboratory challenges in establishing a diagnosis. We describe the presentation and clinical course of a 40-year-old American man with Q fever endocarditis and briefly discuss the salient issues regarding this entity.
