Abstract

We report a case of a free-floating left atrial thrombus in a patient with severe mitral stenosis diagnosed by cross-sectional echocardiography. The Doppler technique was very useful in explaining some peculiar auscultatory and clinical aspects present in this rare complication of mitral valvar stenosis.
