Abstract

Gemella species are commonly found as commensal organisms of the upper respiratory tract. They are not typically associated with common infectious processes. There are, however, some case reports linking Gemella species as the primary organism in causing endocarditis. We present a case of a 50-year-old male patient with endocarditis caused by Gemella species.
