Abstract: Mural endocarditis represents a rare subset of intracardiac infections, with potentially life threatening sequelae. Clinically alike, with many shared aetiologies, substrates and risk factors such as valvular endocarditis, it can be difficult to differentiate without the use of sophisticated cardiovascular imaging techniques. Despite high rates of complications, there are no definite strategies for management. Herein we present three interesting cases of left ventricular mural endocarditis, without valvular involvement, due to staphylococcus aureus.
