abstract

  • Nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis is the most common form of endocarditis found at autopsy. Systemic embolization may complicate this condition in patients with mitral valve prolapse. The authors report a case of mitral valve prolapse and nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis in which the presenting feature was Parinaud's syndrome.
