BOTTA, Cecilia et al. Austrian Syndrome : Presentation of two cases and review of literature. Arch. Med Int [online]. 2015, vol.37, n. 3, pp.127-130. ISSN 0250-3816.

Abstract: The association known as Austrian triad refers to the presence of acute suppurative meningitis, pneumonia and endocarditis caused by the disseminated infection of Streptococcus Pneumoniae. While it may be presented with a subacute course, especially in elderly patients more often rapid progression where complications are the rule, with an overall mortality of 65%, that in case of early diagnosis and surgery decreases to 33%. We present two cases of acute course, with cardiac and extracardiac complications, having passed one of the assisted patients.

Keywords : Austrian Syndrome; Disseminated infection caused by  Streptococcus Pneumoniae.
