Bergeyella cardium: Clinical Characteristics and Draft Genome of an Emerging Pathogen in Native and Prosthetic Valve Endocarditis


Bergeyella cardium is a new species in the family Flavobacteriaceae that was recently described in 3 cases of native valve infective endocarditis. We report the first case of B. cardium prosthetic valve endocarditis, provide the first draft genome of this species, and review the microbiologic characteristics of this emerging pathogen.
