Description
Endocarditis. The human heart has been sectioned to reveal the left ventricle and origin of the aorta, with the aortic valve between them. The yellow growths, called vegetations, on the aortic valve have been caused by a Streptococcus infection, rendering the aortic valve nonfunctional. Because the heart valve is affected, the condition is also called cardiovalvulitis.
