Abstract

Whipple's disease is a systemic illness that can affect the heart, causing pericarditis, myocarditis, and valvular endocarditis. We describe a 43-year-old man without gastrointestinal symptoms who underwent mitral and aortic valve replacement for endocarditis, in whom a diagnosis of Whipple's disease was made at operation.
