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.
