Infective endocarditis

Infective endocarditis

Infective endocarditis is a fatal infection of the inner linings of the heart. The cause is the presence of bacteria in the bloodstream. Patients that have damaged heart valves are commonly affected, as the bacteria find it easy to lodge in the heart. Symptoms are similar to the flu during the initial stages of the infection: there is high fever, headaches, joint and muscle pain and chills. However, later on there is further damage to the valves and leads to heart failure.
