Common coronary ostium mimicking an aortic abscess in a case of bacterial endocarditis

Trigo-Trindade, P
Published in Journal of the American Society of Echocardiography. 1998, vol. 11, no. 1, p. 80-2
Abstract A patient with aortic valve endocarditis presented with severe aortic regurgitation, large vegetation, and a periannular cavity at transesophageal echocardiography consistent with an abscess. At surgery a common coronary ostium was found, which was responsible for the abnormal periannular image. Such congenital abnormality, although unusual, is an echocardiographic pitfall in the case of endocarditis.
