infectious endocarditis
infective endocarditis endocarditis caused by infection with microorganisms, especially bacteria and fungi, traditionally classified according to course as acute or subacute. The acute form is usually due to staphylococci, pneumococci, gonococci, or streptococci, involves a normal heart valve, and has a short history and rapid course. The subacute form usually is due to viridans or fecal streptococci or to fungi, affects damaged heart valves, and has a prolonged course. Because underlying causes and available therapies have changed, this category has largely been replaced by classification on the basis of etiology or underlying anatomy.
