Asymptomatic bacteriuria (colonization of urine with bacteria unassociated with signs/symptoms of infection/UTI) occurs in small number of healthy individuals and more often affects the elderly, women moreso than men, and in those who have an indwelling urinary catheter.

Asymptomatic hypothyrodism causes?

Hypothyroidism

Asymptomatic
Unfortunately the number one cause of this common condition is unknown. This is often thought of as the most common medical diagnosis in American Medicine. Theories abound as to the cause. Many consider an auto-immune response to a common viral illness leading to this shut down of the Thyroid gland. But, genetics also play a major role in this condition.

Dr. Steven Neish answered:

Could endocarditis be asymptomatic?

For a time

Asymptomatic
The classic form of endocarditis is a bacterial infection of the lining of the heart. If the organism has low virulence, then the early stages of endocarditis can be entirely asymptomatic. Typically, over time, though, we believe that the infection worsens, eventually causing symptoms and signs. Fever, heart failure, new murmur, embolism are all potential signs and symptoms.

Causes of asymptomatic hypothyrodism?

Many

Asymptomatic
Asymptomatic hypothyroidism is a condition in which the person has abnormal thyroid levels indicating an underactive thyroid but no symptoms. The causes of this condition are similar to those that cause symptomatic hypothyroidism: genetics, iodine deficiency, autoimmune disease, age, certain medications, etc. But sometimes it cannot be determined what the cause really is.
