Disseminated gonococcal infection (DGI) occurs in 1-3% of all gonococcal infections; endocarditis is a complication in 1-2% of patients with DGI. We present the fourth reported case of gonococcal tricuspid valve endocarditis, this one occurring in a 53-year-old male with a 2-month history of shortness of breath.
