Title : Infective vegetation at site of aortic coarctation …. Infective endarteritis…. A rare presentation
In congenital heart disorders, endocarditis most commonly occurs around valves or prosthetic material. The formation of infective vegetation and the development of endarteritis at the site of coarctation is a rare entity. We describe a case of a 27-year-old male, presented to us with a history of fever. On investigation, he was diagnosed with a case of Aortic coarctation endarteritis. The patient was treated with antibiotics for 6 weeks, and endovascular stenting was planned after reviewing again after 2 months, but we lost follow-up.
