Özet

Until now, only 12 cases of prosthetic valve endocarditis caused by Salmonella spp. have been reported in the English literature. High complication and mortality rates, a fulminant course and the requirement for early surgical intervention deserve special attention in this kind of infective endocarditis. A new case of Salmonella prosthetic valve endocarditis complicated by sepsis-induced cholestasis and a literature review are presented in this report.
