about 75 y old patient with tachycardia, dyspnoea, new heart murmur and elevated inflammatory markers; a condition after implantation of aortic prosthesis is known because of multiple abscesses in spleen and liver. The patient was admitted to our ER from another hospital. In TTE we could see a dehiszence of aortic prosthesis and high grade insufficiency. In TEE we saw a typical picture of endocarditis of aortic prosthesis with dehiszence and paravalvulare abscess.
