|Title:||Marantic endocarditis presenting with multifocal neurological symptoms.||Austin Authors:||Wong, S F;Seow, J;Profitis, K;Johns, J ;Barnett, S ;John, Thomas||Affiliation:||Joint Ludwig Austin Oncology Unit, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia||Issue Date:||1-Feb-2013||Publication information:||Internal Medicine Journal; 43(2): 211-4||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.||Gov't Doc #:||23402487||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/11673||DOI:||10.1111/imj.12018||Journal:||Internal Medicine Journal||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/23402487||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Adenocarcinoma.complications.diagnosis
