Abstract: Many bacterial species can be a cause of various heart diseases. The pathogens that trigger these disorders are very often fastidious, uncultured bacteria, such as: Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, Coxiella burnetii, Bartonella spp. and Rickettsia spp. The following symptoms: myocarditis, endocarditis, pancarditis, perimyocarditis, dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM), conduction and rhythm disturbances and atherosclerotic, cardiovascular and valvular disease may indicate a bacterial etiology of the disease. Detection of significant titers of specific antibodies allows to identify the origin of the disease. A research performed recently has shown the presence of Bartonella spp., B. afzeli and C. burnetii bacteria in malfunctioning human hearts. It indicates that these pathogens, occur ring in the natural environment in ticks and other wild animals, play a significant role in constation of cardiovascular diseases.
