According to clinical studies performed, the incidence of microbial endocarditis is on an increase. Prior to the introduction of antibiotics, Streptococcus viridans was the prevailing cause of microbial endocarditis, whereas now staphylococci, gram-negative bacteria, fungi and viruses ever more frequently appear as causes of this derangement. With growing age of the population, the regressive-degenerative alterations in particular systems also become more marked. Besides this, some patients with hereditary and acquired
heart diseases have better medical equipment and life expectancy
has been prolonged. The use of medical facilities in both diagnostics and therapy is also on an increase. All these mentioned above have become important factors in the etiology and pathogenesis of microbial endocarditis.
