We present a first case of Staphylococcus cohnii endocarditis in an 80-year-old patient with a history of valve regurgitation. Endocarditis by this organism has not been reported previously. The patient declined treatment and died a few days later. When present, S. cohnii endocarditis has a poor prognosis as a result of associated comorbidities and the infection itself.
