Background: Despite major advancements since its first description in the 19th century,
infective endocarditis remains a significant medical challenge. Although commonly involving a
single valve, multiple valve involvement may occur, complicating matters even further. Triplevalve
endocarditis is a very rare phenomenon. Poorly studied and described only a handful of times
in the literature, little is known about the optimal therapeutic and management options in dealing
with this complex entity.
Conclusion: In this paper we describe the case of a 48-year-old male who was diagnosed with
triple-valve endocarditis and provide a review of the literature to delineate what is already known
and improve our understanding of this rare phenomenon.
Keywords: Triple-valve, endocarditis, diabetic patient, therapeutic and management options, phenomenon.
