Abstract


Left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) thrombi are extremely rare and only two previous cases have been published in the medical literature. We present the third case of LVOT thrombus from Sinai Hospital of Baltimore. This thrombus was an incidental finding in a patient who was status post motor vehicle accident. The patient was a 24 year old man who was found to have a mobile mass in the LVOT by echocardiogram.  His heart was otherwise structurally normal.  After surgical excision and pathologic examination, the mass was diagnosed as being a fibrin thrombus.
