Abstract  Infective endocarditis (IE) usually involves the left‐sided valves, and IE involving the tricuspid valve (TV) is rare, often developing in intravenous drug users (IDU). We present a case of a 32‐year‐old male, an intravenous drug abuser (IDA), who presented with nonspecific septic symptoms, and was treated with TV conserving surgery. Pathological examination confirmed tissue destruction, friable thrombotic vegetations, and microorganisms in the leaflet tissue. 

MRSA SEPTIC EMBOLI COMPLICATED WITH PYOPNEUMOTHO- RAX IN A CASE OF AN INTRAVENOUS DRUG ADDICT WITH INFECTIVE ENDOCARDITIS - A CASE REPORT

Pyopneumothorax is an unusual complication in infective endocarditis (IE) with septic emboli but must be considered in patients who developed respiratory distress and must be thought of in patients whose respiratory distress is severe.

Concomitant Mitral and Tricuspid Valve Infective Endocarditis: Report of a Case

A 25-year-old woman with an acute ischemic stroke was found to have vegetation secondary to infective endocarditis as the embolic source and a valve repair with the implantation of artificial chordae, sliding commissuroplasty, and ring annuloplasty resulted in a complete recovery.
