 en Case Report - Candida tropicalis causing Prosthetic Valve Endocarditis
Nagaraja P.A., Mathew T., Shetty D.P.

Abstract

The incidence of endocarditis produced by the so-called "opportunists" as a complication of prosthetic valve surgery is progressively increasing in frequency and gradually transforming the clinical picture habitually associated with this disease. Candida check for this species in other resources endocarditis is an unusual but severe complication caused by Candida albicans check for this species in other resources or other fungal species. This case and a review of the literature indicate that Candida endocarditis treated with amphotericin B and prosthetic valve replacement may recur months after treatment, and that late recurrent Candida endocarditis, which is difficult to diagnose and treat, may be best prevented by lifelong antifungal suppressive therapy.
