Abstract

Infective endocarditis is now one of the less recognized disease entities in the pediatric population. In the risk group there are patients with congenital heart defects before or after intervention and surgery treatment. We present an unusual case of the infective endocarditis of the mitral valve, with the etiology of Staphylococcus aureus, in previously healthy 11-year-old boy.
