Abstract

Although patients with certain cardiac valve abnormalities have increased risk of infective endocarditis (IE), it is unknown whether these abnormalities are associated with specific pathogens in IE cases. We report a strong association between mitral valve prolapse and viridans group streptococcal IE in a population-based cohort from Olmsted County, Minnesota.
