Aortic valve endocarditis is associated with high morbidity and mortality rates and frequently requires surgical intervention. The role of echocardiography (echo) has been well established for the recognition of valvular vegetation, flail leaflet, acute aortic regurgitation (AR), ring abscess and subvalvular aortic root aneurysm.1-4 This report describes the echocardiographic detection of both primary and satellite vegetations that changed morphologically during antibiotic therapy for aortic valve endocarditis.
