Abstract :

We present a very tragic case of a women in her early 60â??s who had a confirmed diagnosis of right sided non-small cell lung adenocarcinoma. Interestingly, she had complained of unilateral right sided hand weakness and altered sensenations. She went on to have a CT and MRI scan with the thought that her cancer had metastasied to her brain. However, MRI went on to reveal that she had gone onto have cerebral infarct, infact the strokes were multiple and resulting in profound dense weakness. A literature search revealed that marantic endocarditits whilst a rare cause of stroke in the general population is not so uncommon cause of stroke in the presence of underlying cancer diagnosis. Hence we would like to highlight the uncommon causes for cardioembolic stroke.
