PMID:  14530039     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We present the case of a 62-year-old man with infectious endocarditis in a Chiari network. Chiari networks are present in 1.5% to 3% of the population. Although Chiari networks are usually clinically insignificant, they are associated with a number of conditions, including patent foramen ovale, thromboembolism, atrial aneurysm, and cardiac arrhythmias. Although there are rare reports of patients with a Chiari network who had endocarditis develop, this is the first report of a patient who had endocarditis develop solely within a Chiari network.
