CHRONIC ENDOCARDITIS





Category: Circulatory System

Usually occurs in persons under middle age.
Generally follows acute endocarditis. It may be caused by syphilis,
alcoholism, gout, and prolonged over-exertion. The edges of the valve
become thickened and then the thickened parts separate and cannot meet
exactly and therefore fail to close the opening they are set to guard.
