Infective endocarditis (IE) is a life-threatening disease. The incidence of IE in developing countries is reported at 1.7-6.2 per 100,000 individuals per year. IE is also known as a potential condition for embolization, especially septic embolism to the brain. Septic embolism results in various neurological complications and manifestations due to vascular occlusion, aneurysm formation and rupture of the aneurysm. We report a case of 34-year-old male with definitive IE based on Duke criteria who experienced neurological complications of intracerebral bleeding. Patient was given pharmacological treatment according to the guidelines of the American Heart Association (AHA)with improvement in clinical symptoms.
