INTRODUCTION: Severe sepsis and septic shock are common problems in the ICU. Early initiation of antibiotics is the standard of care, followed by source identification and control. Patients unresponsive to this approach warrant more extensive work-up. To emphasize this we present a case of concurrent Streptococcus pneumoniae pneumonia, meningitis, and endocarditis, also called Austrian Syndrome.
