Abstract:

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.
