How would you treat a patient suspected to have endocarditis ?

How would you treat a patient suspected to have endocarditis ? 

Until the bacteriology results are available, with intravenous benzylpenicillin and gentamicin. 

In severely ill patients intravenous cloxacillin would be added to this regimen (Circulation 1998; 98: 293648).
