Abstract: This is an article delivered at a meeting of the British Medical Association (Malta Branch) on the 7th March 1967. During the eleven-year period 1955-66 eight cases of endocardial fibroelastosis were diagnosed or confirmed at autopsy. This represents an incidence of 1.9% in the 424 necropsies carried out on children less than two years of age. The frequency of congenital heart diseases was found in the same series to be 13.4%. In almost 1.2% of the cases endocardial fibroelastosis was associated with cardiac anomalies. The literature on the subject is reviewed, and the findings of the present study are compared with those of previous reports.
