Nierenbeteiligung bei infektiöser Endokarditis

Vor Einführung der Antibiotika war die Niereninsuffizienz eine häufige Todesursache bei Patienten mit infektiöser Endokarditis. Baehr und Lande berichteten 1920, daß unter 70 Patienten mit infektiöser Endokarditis allein 9 wegen Nierenversagens starben. Heute dagegen stellt das Nierenversagen — bedingt auch durch die Möglichkeit der Dialysebehandlung — als Todesursache im Rahmen der Endokarditis eine Seltenheit dar (Lowes et al. 1980).
