Résumé
In this clinical scenario, we report the case of a patient who presented multiple embolic complications due to mitral infective endocarditis (IE). A 68-year-old woman had extended right hepatectomy for hilar cholangiocarcinoma. Unfortunately, she had multiple postoperative complications and had to be transferred to the Intensive Care Unit. During this stay, we have diagnosed an Enterococcus faecium IE after the occurrence of multiple embolic complications (myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, digital emboli, splenic emboli, and renal emboli). The case is presented hereunder with illustrative imagings. While embolism is a known complication of IE, the presence of multiple emboli in various organs is rare.
