Although infective is a relatively rare infectious disease it remains a potentially lethal disease with a high morbidity and mortality rate despite medical and surgical advances. Furthermore, the best treatment and timing are often debate. We present the case of a young man with drug addiction and hepatitis B and C, who clinically presented with acute fever, dyspnea, severe anemia and hemoptysis. Acute tricuspid and aortic valve endocarditis by S. Aureus was clinically and echocardiography diagnosed and an early surgical treatment by aortic and tricuspid valve replacement by BioAorticTM and BioMitralTM prosthesis was successfully chosen.
