Abstract

A case presentation is given of a 40 years old woman with acute ischemic cerebrovascular lesion in the territory of the left middle cerebral artery caused by embolization from a myxoma in the left atrium. The tumor was diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiography. Histological examination after cardiac surgery revealed a benignant myxoma. In the six-month-long postoperative follow up gradual improvement of the neurological signs was observed. The most important morphological and clinical characteristics of myxomas are summarized. The necessity of detailed cardiological examination of each young patient with stroke is emphasized.
