The case of a woman with native mitral valve endocarditis due to Haemophilus parainfluenzae (HPI) associated with a pelvic abscess and endometriosis is reported. Although HPI is an infrequent pathogen involved in endocarditis, association to a gynaecological infection has never been reported. Endometriosis could increase this risk.
