Güvenç O, Çimen D. A rare situation in acute rheumatic carditis: Involvement of all four valves. Turk J Pediatr 2017; 59: 497-500. Acute rheumatic fever continues to be an important health problem, especially in countries that are socioeconomically underdeveloped. Carditis, which develops in approximately half of the patients, is responsible for both early-stage mortality as well as late-stage surgical treatment due to heart valve insufficiency or stenosis. The most frequent and severe valve involvement is with the mitral valve, while the aortic valve has the second highest incidence of involvement...
