In summary, while the endocarditis-associated classic Gram negative bacteria, HACEK (an acronym that refers to Haemophilus species, Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Cardiobacterium hominis, Eikenella corrodens, and Kingella species) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa have been well documented, the emergence of Providencia stuartii as a source of endocarditis has not been established.
