We present a challenging case of native aortic valve endocarditis with Enterococcus faecalis in a patient with a history of multiple urinary tract infections and urethral strictures treated by local dilations. The case was complicated by Clostridium difficile colitis and multiple septic embolization. Despite intensive antibacterial therapy, guided by the antibiogram, the vegetations grew in size and the infection became uncontrolled causing recurrent embolism.
