We report a case of native valve and pacemaker endocarditis in a 78-year-old male with diabetes mellitus who died after cardiac surgery. At autopsy, tricuspid valve vegetations and lung abscesses containing thick, hyaline, septate, and branching hyphae were present. The culture identified Scedosporium apiospermum, an infrequent cause of opportunistic infections in immunocompromised hosts.
