Still’s murmur 2

  • George Frederic Still, M.D

    • Common Disorders and Diseases of Childhood

    • published in 1909

    • “I should like to draw attention to a particular bruit which has somewhat of a musical character, but is neither of sinister omen nor does it indicate endocarditis of any sort. …its characteristic feature is a twangy sound, very like that made by twanging a piece of tense string... Whenever may be its origin, I think it is clearly functional, that is to say, not due to any organic disease of the heart either congenital or acquired.” 11
