Özet

Infective endocarditis is a serious septic disease that can be life threatening unless effective therapy is instituted following the correct diagnosis. The complication of septic embolism and mycotic aneurysm in patients with infective endocarditis may increase morbidity and mortality. We present a case of peroneal artery aneurysm with coincident double native heart valve endocarditis in a patient.
