BACTERIAL endocarditis due to organisms of the Salmonella group is relatively rare. Stumpe and Baroody1 reviewed in this journal the literature for the period 1930 to 1950 and found 21 cases recorded. They referred to four unpublished cases to which their attention had been drawn and reported one further case. We are not aware of any other case report since that communication. All these 26 cases terminated fatally. Since the introduction of chloramphenicol, De Swiet2 and Stumpe and Baroody1 each have reported its use in one case. In neither case was the course of the disease influenced.

The purpose of this paper is to report a case of bacterial endocarditis due to Salmonella sp. (Type Sendai) with recovery following combined penicillin and chloramphenicol therapy.
