Isolated huge vegetation in the right ventricular outflow tract due to anaerobic infective endocarditis complicating ventricular septal defect



Isolated huge vegetation in the right ventricular outflow tract due to anaerobic infective endocarditis complicating ventricular septal defect



American Journal of Noninvasive Cardiology 1(2): 123-125



Infective endocarditis with echocardiographically detected vegetations in the right ventricle and especially on the pulmonary valve are rare. A case is reported of infective endocarditis and ventricular septal defect with an echocardiographically detected huge mobile vegetation at the 'jet' lesion in the right ventricular outflow tract, flowing back and forth through the pulmonary valve, due to an anaerobic bacterium-Peptostreptococcus. Because of resistant sepsis, the patient underwent surgery for excision of the vegetation.
