Abstract

We present a 49-y-old male, with a history of marfan's disease and aortic and mitral valve replacement surgery, who was operated for a type iii thoracoabdominal aneurysm. The postoperative course was compromized by a staphylococcus epidermidis mitral valve endocarditis, which was successfully treated only after intravenous linezolid was included in the therapy.
