Clearly, the choice of antimicrobial agent depends upon the identity of the causative agent. Most of the oral streptococcal and S. 5). Penicillin-allergic patients should be treated with a combination of vancomycin and gentamicin. 5 Endocarditis treatment regimens Positive blood cultures are a major diagnostic criterion for infective endocarditis and are key in identifying aetiological agent and its antimicrobial susceptibility. Therefore, whenever there is a clinical suspicion of infective endocarditis it is important to take blood cultures as soon as possible, before antibiotic treatment is started.

1993), highlighting species differences and indicating that multiple virulence factors may be involved in pathogenesis. , 1997). 3), many streptococci, particularly S. sanguis strains, induce the aggregation of platelets in vitro. These aggregates show densely compacted and degranulated platelets and contain entrapped streptococcal cells. Thus, bacterial aggregation of platelets has been proposed to contribute to the establishment and persistence of adherent bacteria through the creation of a protective thrombus.
