A 45-year-old man was emergently hospitalized with complete atrioventricular block (AV).Transthorasic echocardiogram showed infective endocarditis in aortic valve,vegetation on cuspis, complicated with ring abscess, and extending to Interventricular septum.Blood cultures were positive for staphylococcus hominis resistant to meticiline. The diagnosis was endocarditis that is complicated to abcess of aortic and complete atrioventricular block. Surgery and permanent pacemaker was plained during operative period. But the patient was extitus while waiting surgery. Infective endocarditis is one of the uncommon causes of complete AV block. To our knowledge, this is a rare case in which infective endocarditis was complicated by AV block as first sign complete AV block. Patients with endocarditis complicated by complete AV block are at high risk. Early investigation and consideration of early surgical intervention are needed.
