MEDINA ACUNA, Diego Arnaldo; GABRIAGUEZ GONZALEZ, Lorena; VARGAS VIVEROS, Melissa Raquel  e  RIOS-GONZALEZ, Carlos Miguel. Marantic Endocarditis associated with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2019, vol.17, n.3, pp.72-75. ISSN 1812-9528.  https://doi.org/10.18004/mem.iics/1812-9528/2019.017.03.72-075.

Non-bacterial thrombotic endocarditis (NBTE) is defined as the presence of sterile thrombi on the heart valves, correspond to non-infected platelet and fibrin aggregates associated with hypercoagulable states such as malignant neoplasms, which is also called Marantic Endocarditis. We present the case of a patient with a history of prolonged febrile syndrome who underwent antibiotic treatment for an Infective Endocarditis (EI) due to a compatible image with vegetation in the transthoracic echocardiogram. However, the patient persisted feverish and without clinical improvement, until the biopsy of a cervical ganglion diagnosed a Hodgkin lymphoma, improving later with the specific hemato treatment.

Palavras-chave : marantic endocarditis; hipercoagulability; neoplasia; limphoma.
