Infective Endocarditis

dc.contributor.authorMohamed, Anas jumma
dc.descriptionInfective endocarditis (IE) is an infection of the heart valves. A large number of different microorganisms are capable of causing this disease. Depending on the particular pathogen, endocarditis can be indolent, progressing slowly over weeks to months, or fulminant, presenting with a very toxic picture over several days. In the preantibiotic era, this disease was almost uniformly fatal. While endocarditis can now be treated medically, it is a classic example of an infectious disease where "bactericidal" antibiotics are absolutely necessary because the local and systemic host defense mechanisms are of limited benefit.en_US
