Abstract

Infectious endocarditis is frequently complicated with acute cerebral events. In most cases they represent the consequences of cerebral embolism. In the presented case the first clinical manifestation of aortic valve endocarditis was intracerebral bleeding. After exclusion of intracerebral aneurysm the aortic valve was replaced and the further course was uncomplicated.
