Abstract: We report the first case, to our knowledge, of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus endocarditis complicating transurethral prostatic resection for benign prostatic hyperplasia. The patient had been catheterized preoperatively because of urinary retention and, postoperatively, developed pyrexia with persistent methicillin-resistant S. aureus-positive blood cultures. The cause remained elusive, despite extensive investigations (including echocardiography), until he developed embolic phenomena pathognomonic of infective endocarditis 1 month into treatment with intravenous vancomycin. © 2005 Elsevier Inc.
