Abstract

We report a case of severe mitral stenosis caused by Libman-Sacks endocarditis, as an initial manifestation of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in a 20-year-old woman. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated a thickening of the mitral valve with basal endocardial thickening exhibiting defect on first-pass perfusion short-axis acquisition and delayed enhancement in keeping with extensive fibrous endocarditis. The patient underwent successful mechanical mitral valve replacement. This case illustrates that MRI is useful in diagnosing this recognised but uncommon cardiac complication of SLE and excluding differential diagnosis such as valve tumour and infective endocarditis with perivalvular abscesses.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 08 January 2015.
All research outputs
#10,931,278
of 12,334,049 outputs
Outputs from The International Journal of Cardiovascular Imaging (formerly Cardiac Imaging)
#655
of 1,125 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#165,900
of 199,074 outputs
Outputs of similar age from The International Journal of Cardiovascular Imaging (formerly Cardiac Imaging)
#28
of 63 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,334,049 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,125 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.3. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 199,074 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 63 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
