Abstract

Described herein is a 49-year-old black man with advanced polycystic renal disease, on hemodialysis for 6 years, who during his last 12 days of life had his vegetations on the aortic valve extend to the mitral and tricuspid valves, through the aortic wall to produce diffuse pericarditis, to the atrioventricular node to produce complete heart block, and embolize to cerebral arteries producing multiple brain infarcts, to a branch on the left circumflex coronary artery producing acute myocardial infarction, and to mesenteric arteries producing bowel infarction.
