Figure 1: (a) Anterior aspect of the heart showing enlargement of all chambers. Note absence of pericardial abnormality. (b) Close up of the mitral valve showing an almost continuous row of pin-head sized vegetations. There is mild commissural fusion and thickening of the leaflets. The tendinous chords are of adequate length. (c) The left ventricular myocardium revealed multiple globose granulomatous Aschoff body in the interstitium. * indicates the central fibrinoid necrosis
