Abstract

A young Down's syndrome patient developed tricuspid valve endocarditis several years after undergoing surgical closure of a congenital ventricular septal defect. Fungal etiology was established by PCR amplification of the Candida albicans ERG11 gene. Although antifungal therapy was administered, surgical replacement of the infected valve was required to eliminate the infection.
