AbstractWe report the case of a young woman with a transient ischemic attack secondary to a rare intracardiac tumor, a papillary fibroelastoma.
The tumor was identified by two-dimensional echocardiography and was treated surgically.
The intracardiac papillary fibroelastoma as an uncommon source of occult cerebral emboli is discussed.
