Results of transthoracic echo-cardiogram and stained blood and marrow samples. Marrow and aortic valve excrescence samples collected from the patient on admission showing the growth of Gram-positive rods after cultured on 5% sheep blood agar and incubated at 37 °C in an anaerobic chamber with 5% CO2 for 48 h. A) The membranous ventricular septum bulged into the right ventricle. B) Aortic valve prolapse and aortic valve excrescence formation combined with aortic valve regurgitation at moderate level. C) Wright-Giemsa staining of bone marrow showing infective myelogram. D) Hematoxylin-Eosin staining of cardiac excrescence showing infectious excrescence
