An aortic thrombus may be detected by using transesophageal echocardiography after an embolic event. Clinical features are variable and may include cardiac and neurologic symptoms, such as the stroke. We report a case of a woman with an acute ischemic stroke, a myocardial infarction and a free floating aortic thrombus.
