Abstract

Infective endocarditis is a diagnostic challenge since it could manifest as a systemic disease mimicking rheumatologic disorders by immunological mechanisms. We introduced a case of infective endocarditis which was a 62-year-old man who presented with weakness, weight loss, myalgia, arthritis, petechiae, hematuria and proteinuria and was admitted by a rheumatologist for evaluation of possible vasculitis.
Keywords: Infective endocarditis, Vasculitis, Post-infectious glomerulonephritis

Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

Infective endocarditis is sometimes a challenging and misleading diagnosis, so that we should be aware of uncommon presentations of this disease. Here, we described an unusual case of infective endocarditis with vasculitis like presentations since no fever or defined risk factors were existed. Therefore, infective endocarditis should be considered in differential diagnosis of vasculitis like syndromes.
