In two cases of subacute bacterial endocarditis of the aortic and mitral valves with insufficiency of the aortic valve, endocardial pockets with openings toward the aorta were found on the interventricular septum of the left ventricle. The initial lesion which brought about the pocket formation was a circumscribed parietal endocarditis. The continuous regurgitation formed the pockets secondarily. In one case of rheumatic endocarditis of the mitral valve with insufficiency of this valve, endocardial pockets were present in the left auricle. These pockets were open toward the mitral valve. They also were primarily inflammatory in origin and formed secondarily after the
