dont forget the possibility of a small tumor or non bactarial
endocarditis

No, It could be an old veg. That's my thought given the information of
the patient showing no signs or symptoms. Negitive blood test?

Description

If you look carefully at the posterior leaflet of the mitral valve, on the atrial side, you will see a small vegetation. The patient has no signs or symptoms of infection, does this represent endocarditis?
