OYONARTE, Miguel et al. Austrian Syndrome in Infective Endocarditis. Rev Chil Cardiol [online]. 2018, vol.37, n.1, pp.38-41. ISSN 0718-8560.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-85602018000100038.

A syndrome including Infective endocarditis, pneumonia and Meningitis caused by S pneumoniae was described by Robert Austrian in 1957. The aortic valve is affected in most cases. Medical followed by surgical treatment should be promptly implemented.

The clinical case of a 51 year old man with a history of multiple drug consumption developing fever, pneumonia, and meningitis caused by S pneumoniae is presented. Blood cultures were negative and trans esophageal echocardiography showed aortic valve vegetations and moderate regurgitation. After multiple antibiotic treatment the patient underwent aortic valve replacement and recovered satisfactorily. Clinical and epidemiological characteristics of this syndrome are discussed.

Palabras clave : Austrian, Syndrome; endocarditis, infective.
