A 22-year-old man with pre-existing aortic valve disease contracted acute lactobacillus endocarditis six weeks after a dental procedure despite adequate prophylaxis. We discuss the limitations of prophylaxis for infective endocarditis in use until the end of 2008 and describe the new updated guidelines. We also explain the treatment of lactobacillus endocarditis and speculate on possible health risks of the increasing use of lactobacillus-containing dairy products, especially in immune-compromised patients.
