INFECTIVE ENDOCARDITIS AND AN EMBOLOMYCOTIC ANEURYSM IN A 25-MONTH-OLD CHILD JOURNAL OF CARDIOVASCULAR SURGERY Cave, C., Longaker, M. T., Merrick, S., Teitel, D. F., Goldstone, J., Verrier, E. D. 1990; 31 (6): 805-808


Infective endocarditis in young children is uncommon, especially where there is no underlying structural heart disease. While septic embolization in adults occurs in up to 43% of the cases of endocarditis, there is little data on systemic embolization in cases of children. We present an unusual case of a 25-month-old child with infective endocarditis and an embolomycotic aneurysm treated by mitral valve replacement and aortoiliac reconstruction.
