Native valve Aspergillus endocarditis in two patients with aplastic anaemia

, : Native valve Aspergillus endocarditis in two patients with aplastic anaemia. Scandinavian Journal of Infectious Diseases 38(10): 916-920

Native valve fungal endocarditis is an uncommon disease with a high mortality rate. We present the clinical features, histological findings and outcome of 2 patients with native valve Aspergillus endocarditis. Both patients had aplastic anaemia as a predisposing disease. The diagnosis was made by Duke's criteria in 1 case and by histology in the other. Surgery was precluded owing to profound thrombocytopenia.

A disadvantage of purchasing gilts from a healthy herd at an early age (up to 35 kg body weight) was their failure to acquire a satisfactory immunity to SMEDI enterovirus by the time of the first farrowing. The result (for 30 bought-in gilts) was...
