Endocarditis pertains to an inflammation that occurs in the heart’s inner layer also known as endocardium. Endocarditis can either be infective or not depending on the source that causes the condition.
There are two types of Endocarditis, Bacterial Endocarditis and Marantic Endocarditis. The former occurs more frequently than the latter. In fact, Marantic Endocarditis or the type that is non-infective barely occurs.
