Can infective endocarditis and acute rheumatic carditis in a patient with established rheumatic heart disease occur together? If this is common how to differentiate between those two and how to treat?
Expert Answer :
Usually will not occur together. The Dukes criteria should be taken into consideration when considering infective endocarditis. The presence of changing murmurs is highly suspicious of active rheumatic carditis.
