Pneumococcal tricuspid valve endocarditis


, : Pneumococcal tricuspid valve endocarditis. Ugeskrift for Laeger 157(50): 7014-7015

Endocarditis caused by pneumococci is a rare disease and cases that only affect the tricuspid valve represent less than 1% of all cases of endocarditis. A case presenting with a primary pneumonia and septicaemia is described. Due to persistent fever and the occurrence of a cardiac murmur echocardiography was done and demonstrated vegetations on the tricuspid valve. The course was complicated with septic pulmonary emboli before the patient recovered. Endocarditis with pneumococci may occur as a complication to a primary pneumonia and underestimation of the frequency with which it occurs is a possibility. Attention should be paid to patients with a primary pneumonia who do not respond to the initial treatment and to those who after an initial response show recurrent fever.

These findings are due to cerebral injury that may occur early in li...

Spatial disorientation (SD) in flight remains a major source of attrition.
