Abstract

Burkholderia cepacia complex organisms are environmental Gram-negative bacteria which rarely cause disease in otherwise immunocompetent individuals. We describe a case of tricuspid valve endocarditis secondary to B. cepacia complex in an injecting intravenous drug user in Auckland, New Zealand.
