Abstract

Left atrial appendage thrombi in neonates are uncommon. We describe a neonate with a large thrombus in the left atrial appendage detected by echocardiography after a paroxystic sustained supraventricular tachycardia associated with intermittent Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. Mechanisms and therapy of atrial thrombosis in neonates are briefly discussed.
