We report a case of endocarditis due to Lactobacillus casei subsp. rhamnosus. The bacterium isolated from blood cultures and from valve tissue specimens was identified using both phenotypical analysis and DNA sequence analysis, which revealed that the rod profiles of the pathogens recovered from blood cultures and valve tissue specimens were the same.
