Abstract

Neurologic complications of bacterial endocarditis have been observed for centuries but its management has remained challenging at all times. The cerebrovascular complications of this disorder are the most feared and difficult to address. The management of mycotic aneurysms, recent ischemic/hemorrhagic strokes with and without brain abscesses, and mechanical valve patients continues as an ongoing challenge. Literature continues to appear, providing new alternatives in treatment and hope for improved therapy.
