Left ventricular (LV) thrombus is a serious complication of acute myocardial infarction (MI) with the risk of systemic thromboembolism. Two-dimensional echocardiography (2D-Echo) allows detection and is an important tool for the follow-up of such cases. Our patient had suffered from an acute ischemic stroke and was referred by the treating neurologist for changes in the electrocardiogram. The patient had anterior wall MI, and 2D-echo showed a large LV thrombus. He was started on anticoagulants to prevent future thromboembolic events.
