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.
