Abstract:

A 73 year old woman was seen with a lung mass and acute onset of ataxia. MRI of the brain was notable for multifocal infarcts (Figure 1). Echocardiography (ECHO) was obtained to identify cardiac source of emboli and was notable for freely mobile mass tethered to the lateral left atrial wall, crossing the mitral valve into the left atrium (Figure 2). A contrast enhanced CT scan of the chest was obtained which confirmed the presence of a large right upper lobe mass with extension to the right pulmonary vein, left atrium and into the left ventricle (Figures 3 and 4). The biopsy confirmed small cell lung cancer.
