Abstract

Nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis (NBTE), or marantic endocarditis, was found at autopsy in a young male homosexual with Kaposi's sarcoma. Vegetations were seen in the mitral and aortic valves. Embolic phenomena and cytomegalovirus infection were noted in the brain, spleen, liver, lung, gastrointestinal tract, and bone marrow. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of NBTE in a young immunosuppressed homosexual man with Kaposi's sarcoma.
