Abstract: The diagnosis of infective endocarditis remains difficult. The complication rate is very high. Serious complications may occur and the overall mortality is still 20-25%. The sooner the treatment is started, the better the final result. Antibiotic therapy is essential but cardiac surgery is frequently necessary. Early surgery improves outcome. A multidiciplinary approach by internal medicine, cardiology and cardiac surgery facilitates the efficiency of diagnosis and treatment.
