Infective endocarditis is a relatively rare complication of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Infective endocarditis
in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is almost always seen in patients with outflow obstruction and is more common in those
with both outflow obstruction and atrial dilatation. We present a case of culture negative mitral valve endocarditis in a
previously asymptomatic woman with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy who died in the course of the disease.
