Abstract

We describe a term female neonate with Serratia marcescens endocarditis. Despite adequate antibiotic therapy for 8 days, the bacteremia persisted and there was an increase in vegetation size. Treatment with aspirin was initiated, with resolution of the bacteremia and a gradual decrease in vegetation size. We conclude that in neonatal endocarditis, aspirin may be beneficial additional treatment.
