The patient was discharged on the ninety-fifth day of hospitalization with moderate disability grade 3 on the modified Rankin scale9 after completing 42 days of treatment with the latest antimicrobial scheme.

Italian study on endocarditis. Discussion The case reported is consistent with the reality of IE in medical practice in various aspects. The arterial branching points are the most common place where these emboli impact. International Subarachnoid Aneurysm Trial ISAT of neurosurgical clipping versus endovascular coiling in patients with ruptured intracranial aneurysms: A favorable neck-to-dome ratio was present in only 2 cases in which a selective standard coil embolization technique was performed.

Although the introduction of foreign material into an infected area could result, theoretically, in prolonged infection, we didn’t observe any infectious complication in our series.

A favorite aspect of using coils is the possibility of allowing parent vessel preservation, reducing the chances of cerebral infarct as consequence of embolization 6. Clin Infect Dis, 32pp. Scott Gettings, MD August 18, In only one case blood cultures were positive, and Enterococcus was isolated.

A year-old woman with a history of surgically corrected tetralogy of Fallot at the age of 11, and recent dental procedures, presented with fever, anorexia, weight loss and fatigue for one month and epigastric pain of recent onset.

In the postoperative micotiicos blood cultures became negative and renal function recovered. PVE is a diagnostic challenge: The transthoracic echocardiogram TTE revealed an extremely mobile mm vegetation on the right coronary cusp of the aortic valve and severe aortic regurgitation, accompanying previously known severe dilation of the right heart chambers and pulmonary regurgitation.

So, corroborating the literature, our series showed a good result of the EVT, although it is too small to conclude the efficacy of the method. Arquivado dende o orixinal o 30 de setembro de An immediate control angiogram was performed after each procedure, and heparin was discontinued. AugustVolume 22, Issue 8, pp — Transesophageal echocardiogram, long-axis aortic valve plane, demonstrating the presence of a vegetation in the aortic prosthesis arrow.

We present a series of five patients with infectious endocarditis and intracranial infectious aneurysms mycotic aneurysms managed by means of endovascular treatment. This paradox is not frequent, but possible, considering the presence of underlying heart disease and the characteristics of the patient.

In patients treated with surgery or, more recently, endovascular techniques EVTocclusion of the IIAs can be achieved 7,8. IIA also can be obliterated aneurismqs the hemorrhages that they produce, being hard to be identified 12, J Antimicrob Chemother, 67pp. How to cite this article.

Diagnosis and management of infective endocarditis and its complications. In this case numerous predictors wneurismas poor outcome were present, besides the fungal etiology of a prosthetic cegebrales infection. In addition to the difficulty in diagnosis, the treatment of this complication does not yet have defined protocols, which makes conduct individualized and based on the clinical symptoms of the patient, as well as on the cost-benefit analysis of the treatment strategies.

Mmicoticos Cardiovasc Thorac Surg. They were referred for monitoring by hepatitis and cardiology outpatient clinics with valvuloplasty scheduled.


Clinical pathological analysis confirmed its infectious etiology and the diagnosis of mycotic aneurysm. Patient 2 Fig 1 had a Fisher grade IV subarachnoid hemorrhage caused by a very small aneurysm less then 1 mm in diameter of the parieto-occiptal branch of the posterior cerebral artery.

Mycotic aneurysm as a complication of infective endocarditis – a case report

The following diagnostic criteria for endocarditis were considered: The timing of surgery is not consensual but early surgery appears to improve survival, depending on the patient’s clinical condition. None of the patients had a rehemorrhage after treatment. TTE and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging showed no signs of cardiac infection. If negative, a second angiography was done after antibiotic therapy had finished, or before the need of long-term anticoagulation patients with prosthetic heart valves.

Our diagnostic criteria for IIA were based on the association of infectious endocarditis with classically described IIA, being this a distal aneurysm, with irregular walls, without neck Are Aortic Aneurysms Caused by Atherosclerosis?

Aneurisma micótico

Fungal endocarditis FE is a rare condition with high mortality and poor prognosis. The cerebral hemorrhage presented by the patient can be justified by the fact that mycotic aneurysms generally present a fine and fragile wall. Fungal endocarditis with central and peripheral embolization: The patient initially remained aphasic, but presented progressive improvement with multi-professional rehabilitation.

However, after an open heart surgery he died due to sepsis and acute respiratory distress syndrome. We report five cases of IIAs associated with endocarditis, which were treated with endovascular techniques. Most frequently it results from impaction of an infected embolus in the context of infective endocarditis.
