Abstract

Murmurs will be a frequent finding during the well child pediatric exam and perhaps more frequent during the evaluation of an acute illness, but most of these murmurs are innocent. Understanding the variety of causes of innocent murmurs should help identify them as such. However, referral to the pediatric cardiac specialist is appropriate in newborns and small infants, when the findings are not entirely consistent with an innocent murmur, or when there are other reasons to suspect heart disease.
