Streptococcus gallolyticus and Bacterial Endocarditis in Swine, United States, 2015–2020
Emerging Infectious Diseases, 28(1), 192–195.
Abstract To evaluate trends in bacterial causes of valvular endocarditis in swine, we retrospectively analyzed 321 cases diagnosed at Iowa State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (Ames, IA, USA) during May 2015–April 2020. Streptococcus gallolyticus was the causative agent for 7.59% of cases. This emerging infection in swine could aid study of endocarditis in humans.
