She describes it as a sharp pain over her left chest. Physical exam is normal. Cardiac examination reveals a late systolic murmur preceded by a click at the apex. No heave or rub is present. An electrocardiogram and chest x-ray film are unremarkable.  What is the pathology?  Will she need antibiotics prior to say… dental procedures?<br />
