Abstract

Bacterial endocarditis is an infection of the endothelial surface of the heart, including heart valves and is potentially life threatening. Antibiotic prophylaxis is indicated prior to invasive procedures in patients with certain high-risk cardiac conditions and thorough history needs to be elicited prior to performing such procedures. Herein, we present a case of splenorenal infarction secondary to septic emboli in a 42-year-old patient with prosthetic aortic valve who underwent a dental procedure without endocarditis prophylaxis.
