Abstract [en]

Intravenous drug use imposes a high risk of acquiring bacterial infections. In this report we present 3 cases of enterococcal endocarditis in intravenous drug users, diagnosed over a period of 3 months. Genotyping revealed that 2 of the cases were caused by closely related isolates, suggesting possible spread by contaminated drugs.
