PMID:  18980097     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The case is presented of chronic aortic valve endocarditis in a previously asymptomatic 54-year-old male. The main initial clinical manifestation was cardiogenic shock, but further examination revealed the presence of a large mobile mass attached to a bicuspid aortic valve, partially occluding the left coronary ostium. The patient underwent emergency surgery to excise the vegetative mass and preserve the aortic valve. The postoperative outcome was satisfactory.
