Abstract

A 34-year-old man came to this Emergency Room because of fever, swelling and pain in the right thigh. Tetralogy of Fallot with bicuspid pulmonary valve was diagnosed after serial examination, and computed tomography of the right thigh revealed pyogenic myositis. Surgical drainage of the right thigh abscess and a further pus culture yielded viridans streptococci. There has been no record in the medical literature of a pyogenic myositis caused by viridans streptococci in an adult tetralogy of Fallot. This is thus the first case reported.
