We describe a case of endocarditis caused by Salmonella enterica serotype virchow, which was treated conservatively with antibiotics alone. It is the only reported case of survival from salmonella endocarditis with conservative treatment, and the first reported case of endocarditis caused by Salmonella virchow. The changing prevalence, virulence patterns and importance of salmonella species in endocarditis are discussed.
