We report a case of aorto-pulmonary fistula following multiple valve surgery in a patient with colon carcinoma who had had recurrent episodes of Streptococcus Bovis endocarditis. Diagnosis was made by transesophageal echocardiography and aortography. Patient underwent emergency percutaneous implantation of an aortic endoprosthesis, but he continued to deteriorate and the fatal outcome could not be changed. This case underscores the importance of examination of gastrointestinal tract in patients with Streptococcus Bovis endocarditis. © 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
