We investigated the microorganisms causing blood culture–negative endocarditis (BCNE) in Morocco.

We tested 19 patients with BCNE by serologic methods, molecular methods, or both and identified Bartonella quintana, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus equi, and Streptococcus oralis in 4 patients.

These results highlight the role of these zoonotic agents in BCNE in Morocco.
