Endocarditis is the inflammation of the heart’s inner layer, known medically as the endocardium. The condition may be either infective or non-infective, with the infective variant being caused by a microorganism. Endocarditis is more likely to be seen in patients with pre-existing heart disease, or those with HIV/AIDS. Symptoms include, but are not limited to, flu-like symptoms, weight loss, muscle pain and shortness of breath. Complications may arise such as heart failure, heart attack, stroke and additional infections if endocarditis goes untreated. Antibiotics are the mainstay of therapy, but surgery may be required if heart valves have been damaged.
