Abstract

A patient with Streptococcus bovis endocarditis, on complete gastrointestinal evaluation had only an adenomatous polyp of the sigmoid colon. Twenty‐eight months later she was found to have invasive cecal carcinoma. Periodic evaluation of the gastrointestinal tract is therefore recommended for all patients with a history of S. bovis septicemia.
