Infective endocarditis. Section through a heart affected by inflammation of the endocardium (endocarditis) caused by an infection. The endocardium is the innermost layer of tissue that lines the chambers of the heart. Endocarditis may be infective - caused by infection, or non-infective - from some other cause. Here, the valves have been severely affected and vegetations have formed on their surface.
