Abstract
We describe a case of pacemaker endocarditis due to Candida albicans i n a patient who responded favorably to combined surgical and antifunga l therapy. Only five cases of candidal pacemaker endocarditis have bee n reported previously. We review these five cases and discuss the clin ical presentation and therapy for this disease in comparison with cand idal prosthetic valve endocarditis.
