Tricuspid Infective Endocarditis Complicated by Complete Atrioventricular Block in Child Aged 14 Years: A Case Report.

Infective tricuspid endocarditis on a healthy heart is rare. It remains extremely serious because of cardiovascular complications. We report on a case that occurred in a black child aged of 14 years old with no particular history. He was admitted for septicemia starting at joint and muscle level. He had syncope a few days later in a context of a bradycardia. The electrocardiogram gave evidence of a complete atrioventricular block, and the echocardiography showed tricuspid vegetation with significant regurgitation. Despite controlling the infection with antibiotics, evolution was marked by right ventricular failure and persistence of the complete atrioventricular block, which was well tolerated without cardiac pacing.
