Left ventricular (LV) thrombus is one of complication of ischemic heart disease like acute myocardial infarction and is associated with systemic thromboembolism including ischemic stroke. If an LV thrombus is detected, anticoagulation is essential to prevent systemic thromboembolism. Paradoxically, we report a patient with acute ischemic stroke during anticoagulation treatment of LV thrombus.
