Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 51-year-old man with a medical history of hypertension, diabetes mellitus type 2 and obesity. The patient's physical examination revealed that he is obese and added that his cardiac examination showed a regular rhythm and a soft systolic crescendo-decrescendo murmur loudest at the right upper sternal border preceded by an ejection click. It concludes that patients with heart murmur diagnosis must be treated with echocardiographic screening.
