Abstract

We present a case of a 2.5-year-old girl with a history recurrent pneumonia, followed by decreased physical capacity. Echocardiography showed severe (grade IV) mitral regurgitation with anterior leaflet perforation. The patient was selected for cardiac surgery. The possibility of endocarditis as a cause of mitral valve insufficiency is discussed.
