Subacute Bacterial Endocarditis is a type of Infective Endocarditis that courses over an extended period of time, often weeks or months. The symptoms are often subtle and non-specific including fatigue, anorexia, fever and unexplained weight loss. Hence, diagnosis is often not straightforward. It is usually caused by organisms of low virulence and underlying structural valve disease is generally present.
