Aspergillus endocarditis is a rare event; a very few cases have been reported in injection drug users (IDUs) and patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). We report 2 proven cases and 1 highly suggestive case of Aspergillus endocarditis in IDUs, 2 of whom were infected with HIV, and discuss some related clinical and pathogenic aspects.
