    Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) is often considered as a disease of developing countries and India is the home of about 40% of RHD patients. Environment seems to play a major role in its causation. Since gene environment interactions can lead to alterations of various metabolic pathways, identification of altered metabolites can help in understanding the various pathways leading to RHD. Blood plasma samples from 51 RHD and 49 healthy controls were collected for the study. Untargeted metabolomics approach was used to identify the metabolites that are altered in RHD patients. Data showed 25 altered metabolites among RHD patients. These altered metabolites were those involved in Purine, Glutamine, Glutamate, Pyrimidine, Arginine, Proline and Linoleic metabolism. Thus, the present study illuminates metabolic alterations among RHD patients which can help in determining the potential therapeutic targets. © 2022. The Author(s).
