Infective Endocarditis (IE) is a very rare complication following spinal epidural injection and requires high index of suspicion for early diagnosis and effective management.

Staphylococcus Lugdunesis is a coagulase negative staphylococcus (CoNS) that, unlike other CoNS, may result in aggressive form of native valve infective endocarditis (IE) mimicking IE caused by S aureus. Surgical intervention is usually needed to control infection in most cases of S. Lugdunesis IE.

Herein, we report a case of young lady with congenital Gerbode defect who developed tricuspid native valve IE with S. Lugdunesis secondary to spondylodiscitis post lumbar epidural injection that was performed for disk prolapse. She required urgent surgical intervention and had an excellent outcome.
