Abstract

A case of rheumatic heart disease with massive myocardial infarction from coronary embolism complicating bacterial endocarditis is reported. The rarity of this complication in the pediatric age group as compared to the adult age group remains unexplained. Early recognition depends on serial electrocardiographic and enzymatic determinations.
