Endocarditis of a Native Cardiac Valve due to Salmonella typhi - A Case Report

Abstract

Endocarditis of a Native Cardiac Valve due to Salmonella typhi - A Case Report

Infective endocarditis is a rare manifestation of Salmonella typhi infection. This paper describes a case of Salmonella typhi native aortic valve endocarditis, treated successfully with antibiotics. Our patient did not have any gastrointestinal symptoms throughout the course of the illness. This case report highlights the importance of suspecting typhoid endocarditis in a patient with pyrexia of unknown origin even in the absence of gastrointestinal symptoms.

Keywords: Typhoid endocarditis; Native aortic valve
