Abstract [en]

In this report, we present the first known case of Bartonella endocarditis in Sweden. IgG antibody titres to Bartonella spp. were elevated but blood cultures remained negative. Sequencing of a gltA fragment from DNA extracted from heart valve tissue specimens revealed sequence homology with B. quintana.
