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.
