ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) due to septic coronary embolism is a rare complication of infective endocarditis (IE) and isassociated with high mortality rates. When common signs of IE are often overlooked on admission, the diagnosis may be established throughcomplications, which may cause prominent symptoms. Here, we report a case of native mitral valve endocarditis with an unusual presentation withSTEMI and concomitant ischemic stroke, which was due to multiple coronary and cerebral septic embolisms. © 2018 The Author(s).
