    Background: Fever MESHD Fever HP, dry cough MESHD cough HP and fatigue MESHD fatigue HP are the most common symptoms of the coronavirus disease MESHD-2019 (COVID-19). During the COVID-19 pandemic in China, we treated a patient with fever MESHD fever HP and finally diagnosed congenital heart disease MESHD.Case presentation: An 18-year-old lady came to the fever MESHD fever HP clinic with a complaint about the symptoms of fever MESHD fever HP, dry cough MESHD cough HP and dyspnea MESHD dyspnea HP for 15 days. She had a travel TRANS history of epidemic area two weeks ago. She had a low fever MESHD fever HP and dry cough MESHD cough HP accompanied with chest tightness HP and fatigue MESHD fatigue HP. Eventually she diagnosed ventricular septal defect HP complicated by infective endocarditis MESHD endocarditis HP. Two months after surgery, the patient returned to normal social life and physical activity.Conclusion: Early surgical treatment is an effective strategy for ventricular septal defect HP patients complicated with IE, which can improve the early survival rate of patients.

    Background. The COVID pandemic has had a major impact on healthcare in hospitals, including the diagnosis and treatment of infections MESHD. Hospital-acquired infective endocarditis MESHD endocarditis HP (HAIE) is a severe complication of medical procedures that has shown a progressive increase in recent years. Objectives. to determine whether the incidence of HAIE during the first two months of the epidemic (March-April 2020) was higher than previously observed and to describe the clinical characteristics of these cases. The probability of studied event (HAIE) during the studied period was calculate by Poisson distribution. Results. Four cases of HAIE were diagnosed in our institution during the study period. The incidence of HAIE during the study period was 2/patient-month and 0.25/patient-month during the previous 5 years (p=0.024). Two cases appeared during admission for COVID-19 with pulmonary involvement treated with metilprednisolone and tocilizumab. The other two cases were admitted to the hospital during the epidemic. All cases underwent central venous and urinary catheterization during admission. The etiology of HAIE was Enterococcus faecalis (2 cases), Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans (one case each). A source of infection MESHD was identified in three cases (central venous catheter, peripheral venous catheter, sternal wound infection MESHD, respectively). One patient was operated on. There were no fatalities during the first 30 days of follow-up. Conclusion. The incidence of HAIE during COVID-19 pandemic in our institution was higher than usual. In order to reduce the risk of this serious infection MESHD, optimal catheter care, appropriate use of corticosteroids and interleukin antagonists and early treatment of every local infection MESHD should be prioritized during coronavirus outbreaks.
