Abstract

Marantic endocarditis is a non-infective cause of valvular masses. It is most commonly associated with advanced malignancy. We report a case of rapidly progressive marantic endocarditis, complicated by valve destruction and recurrent systemic embolisation, in a patient whose cancer was occult.
