Watch a video case report: metastatic myocardial abscess

Accompanying one of Journal of Medical Case Reports‘ latest case reports is a mini-video. Iqbal et al. report a case of a 29-year-old intravenous drug user presenting with a 2-week history of fever, malaise and myalgia.

After detection of sever tricuspid regurgitation, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) revealed a 4.5cm diameter left ventricular posterior wall abscess contained by only a 2mm thin layer of myocardium.

Watch this short clip to see the CMRI, and read the full case report for more details.

We particularly welcome video in case reports, so if you have something to share, submit your case report today.
