sp. are the most common causes of culture-negative infective endocarditis (IE) cases in the United States. Although, infection-related glomerulonephritis can frequently mimic primary vasculitis due to pauci-immune pattern, majority of previously reported cases of -associated glomerulonephritis have immune-complex deposits on immunofluorescence. We present a rare case of IE-related pauci-immune necrotizing glomerulonephritis. Timely recognition of this atypical presentation led to appropriately directed medical therapy.
