Abstract

We report a case of rat bite fever caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis in Taiwan. It manifested as prosthetic valve endocarditis, which was cured by cardiac valve replacement and antimicrobial therapy. The DNA sequence of the 16S rRNA gene of S. moniliformis was detected in valve specimens by PCR and nucleotide sequencing.
