Abstract: Rothia dentocariosa is a rare cause of endocarditis. It occurs most frequently in patients with prior heart conditions. Although the clinical course is typically subacute, it has a high rate of complications. In particular, the reported incidence of mycotic aneurysms is as high as 25%. Penicillin is the treatment of choice, but additional complications may necessitate prompt surgical intervention. As far as we know, this paper reports the first case of repeated subarachnoid hemorrhages due to R. dentocariosa endocarditis.
