Infective endocarditis (IE) is an uncommon infection of the cardiac endothelium. IE includes both acute bacterial endocarditis and sub-acute bacterial endocarditis (SBE). IE is an old problem in a new cover. Infective endocarditis (IE) in children can result in significant morbidity and mortality. A severe complication of infective endocarditis (IE) is organ embolization such as septic pulmonary embolism (SPE).
