Abstract

Bacterial endocarditis is an uncommon diagnosis in childhood with significant morbidity and mortality. Aortic aneurysm as a complication is well described in adults but there are few reports in the paediatric literature. Two children with bacterial endocarditis are described, whose illnesses were complicated by aortic aneurysm formation requiring surgical intervention.
