Abstract

This article reviews both infective and noninfective endocarditis in neonates, contrasting historical observations with recent descriptions of this disease. Pathogenesis, etiologic agents, diagnostic tests, and treatment all are discussed in addition to complications and prognosis of endocarditis in newborns, which appears to be increasing in frequency.
