Abstract :
[en] We present the case of a middle-aged man who developed infective endocarditis of the tricuspid valve caused by methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus and associated with very large vegetation (∼5 cm). Besides the quite unusual size of the vegetation, this report highlights that severe right-sided endocarditis can occur in the absence of classical risk factors (intravenous drug abuse, presence of a cardiac implantable electronic device or other intravascular devices, and underlying right-sided cardiac anomaly) and that some cases of severe tricuspid endocarditis can be successfully treated by partial excision and patch repair.
