Abstract

A 55-year-old black man, an intravenous substance abuser who had an acute arterial embolus to the distal aorta originating from his mitral valve, was noted on pathologic examination of the clot to have aspergillosis emboli. The infective endocarditis also resulted in emboli to the brain with subsequent death.
