A 54-­year-old ­woman was diag­nosed as ­having sep­ti­cemia sec­on­dary to infec­tive endo­car­ditis ­with ­aortic regur­gi­ta­tion ­which was com­pli­cated by endoph­thal­mitis. Her sep­ti­cemia was con­trolled by intra­ve­nous anti­bi­otic ­therapy. ­Then the local­ized eye infec­tion and the ­aortic regur­gi­ta­tion ­with a mas­sive veg­e­ta­tion ­were sur­gi­cally ­treated simul­ta­ne­ously. She had no ­relapse of infec­tion ­after inten­sive post­op­er­a­tive anti­bi­otic ­therapy.
