There is an increased risk of infective endocarditis catheterization used for hemodialysis. We report a case of a young man who had endocarditis secondary to the use of a permanent jugular catheter for hemodialysis. Blood cultures were repeatedly negative, but vegetations were seen on the tricuspid valve on echocardiography. A high index of suspicion is recommended for this serious complication.
