Background: The aim of his study was to evaluate the frequency of two most Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia (SAB) associated with infective endocarditis (IE) is common. Ischemic infarction is a frequent neurological complication of IE; however, young stroke resulting from IE is rare. We herein report a case of acute mitral valve and aortic valve infective endocarditis complicated with young stroke 8 days after left foot debridement due to methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus Aureus (MSSA)-related cellulitis. The patient was discharged successfully after 6 weeks of antibiotics with oxacillin in spite of valve replacement surgery due to hemorrhagic transformation of right frontoparietal lobes.
