Abstract

Infective endocarditis (IE) is becoming a more common illness in children, especially in patients with congenital heart disease. There remains no consensus as to the optimal diagnosis, treatment and prophylaxis. One of the most challenging problems in this group of patients is surgery, because of the often extremely small dimensions and the lack of proper valve prosthesis. In light of this growing problem, there is a need for better knowledge regarding IE if this insidious disease is to to be promptly identified and and effectively treated.
