|Abstract:||Non-bacterial thrombotic endocarditis (NBTE), also known as marantic endocarditis, has been reported to occur in 0.3-9.3% of the adult population at autopsy. NBTE associated with malignancy is an underrecognised cause of thromboembolic disorders. The clinical spectrum encountered and investigation results can be non-specific, often mimicking other acute conditions such as infective endocarditis. We describe the case of a 34-year-old woman with non-localising and multifocal neurological symptoms, who was subsequently diagnosed with NBTE secondary to a resectable primary lung adenocarcinoma.|
