4 year old murmur....

When my son was born, he didn't have a murmur. At 12 days old he was diagnosed with viral meningeal encephalitis, and ever since had a murmur.  He underwent a echo of his heart while was hospitalized.  At 4 years old, he still has this murmur.  Is this something that was caused by the encephalitis, and what problems can we expect in the future?  He will be seeing the pediatric cardiologist next month.

HI, Our son was diagnosed with a murmur at about 2 weeks old also. Please try not to worry too much as he still has his and is 13 now. Lots of people walk around with heart murmurs and don't know it. If they were really concerned the cardiologists appointment would be much sooner. We only see the cardiologist every few years. Take care and try not to worry too much Good luck at the appointment let me know if you like
