Abstract

Prognosis in neonatal endocarditis depends on early diagnosis and the status of the patient at the time of diagnosis, and effective treatment with appropriate antibiotics. The current case report describes a case of successful conservative treatment of endocarditis in a 26 day old male neonate, previously inadequately treated for septicaemia in another hospital.
