Ehlers-Danlos syndrome with infective endocarditis: A case report with literature review

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We report a patient with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and mitral valve infective endocarditis. The case was complicated due to multiorgan involvement and initially diagnosed as hand-foot-and-mouth disease. The patient was transferred to our hospital with cerebral septic emboli and bilateral lower extremity emboli requiring early surgery. Complications of this syndrome and surgical risks are discussed in this report.
