Abstract

A 47-year-old woman with a history of radiation enteritis and implantation of a central venous port was admitted to our intensive care unit(ICU) suffering from high fever. She was diagnosed with active infective endocarditis due to catheter-related blood stream infection. Although echocardiography showed a large vegetation on the mitral valve, surgical therapy was postponed for 5 weeks because of intracranial hemorrhage infarction. On the 3rd day after mitral valve repair, she developed consciousness disturbance and computed tomography(CT) revealed acute subdural hematoma of the posterior cranial fossa. Fortunately, she fully recovered from the neurological complication without surgical intervention.
