195 Possible Causes for Endocarditis, Prolonged PR Interval

  • Streptococcal Infection

    Pancarditis is a rare condition with a poor prognosis combining endocarditis, myocarditis with abscess formation, and purulent pericarditis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The minor criteria include arthralgia, fever, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, elevated C-reactive protein, or a prolonged PR interval [ 1 ].[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com] Meningococcal Infection Bacterial Endocarditis: Infective Endocarditis Bacterial endocarditis is a complication of streptococcal septicemia in which the organisms spread from[histopathology-india.net]

  • Rheumatic Fever

    Karchmer, A.W. (2005) Infective Endocarditis.[dx.doi.org] We report on a 10-year-old boy who presented with progressive right side involuntary movements, an apical systolic murmur, prolonged PR interval, and elevated antistreptolysin[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Initial attack patients have higher incidence of prolonged PR-interval (67 vs. 12%, P 0.049) and longer duration of admission to diagnosis (5 vs. 2 days, P 0.05).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rheumatic Heart Disease

    Rheumatic myocarditis and endocarditis and old rheumatic mitral valve deformities were also present.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ECG reveals no diagnostic changes, but 20% of patient show a prolonged PR interval. 15.[slideshare.net] PR interval[ 8 ] [ 9 ] (Cannot be included if carditis is present as a major symptom) Previous episode of rheumatic fever or inactive heart disease Other signs and symptoms[textbookofcardiology.org]

    Loeffler endocarditis is a form of restrictive cardiomyopathy which affects the endocardium and occurs with white blood cell proliferation, specifically of eosinophils .

  • Corynebacterium Diphtheriae

    In one case toxigenic C. diphtheriae caused endocarditis in an immunized child with congenital heart disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A prolonged PR interval with changes in the ST-T waves were noted on her electrocardiogram.[ijmm.org] The endocarditis-associated strains displayed an aggregative adherence pattern and a higher number of internalized viable cells in HUVECs.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lyme Carditis

    Rarely, Lyme disease may be the cause of endocarditis, while some studies and reports, based on serological and/or molecular investigations, have suggested possible influence[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He was noted to possibly have subtle Brugada pattern on EKG with prolonged PR interval of 252ms. A procainamide challenge was equivocal.[onlinejacc.org] Borrelia burgdorferi myocarditis Molecular diagnosis of culture negative infective endocarditis Borrelia infection as a cause of Carditis (a long-term study).[empirestatelymediseaseassociation.org]

  • Acute Bacterial Endocarditis

    The most frequent bacterial etiologic agents of acute endocarditis are enterococci.[symptoma.com] Aortic root abscess, may lead to prolongation of PR interval or even complete AV block. Systemic embolism.[prepareformedicalexams.blogspot.com] Marantic endocarditis (ME) is defined by noninfectious valvular vegetations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
