Résumé
Echocardiography is a key tool in the diagnosis of infective endocarditis. Although transthoracic echocardiography is the first step in the work-up, transoesophageal echocardiography is mandatory for the evaluation of the exact extent of the infectious process. Indeed, perivalvular abscess can fistulate towards different heart chambers, leading sometimes to critical clinical situations.
