baja_blast  You're almost certainly right that it's mitral valve endocarditis. The murmur is accentuated by Expiration, consistent with lEft-sided murmurs. On the other hand, rIght-sided murmurs are accentuated by Inspiration. Note the capital letters for a handy trick. God Bless Dr. Jason Ryan. +8  
rahmanu  But the murmur is auscultated at the 2nd left intercostal space, isn't that aortic regurgitation (vulvular)? still a left sided murmur yes. +1  
mkayman  @rahmanu aortic valve regurgitation would be heard on the 2nd RIGHT intercostal space. +  
chaosawaits  Actually, an AR is best heard at the third intercostal space on the left side. Be mindful when they want to get tricky! +
