Abstract: Strokes due to embolization from a cardiac myxoma are rare. Myxomatous cerebral emboli can cause occlusion of intracranial vessels or oncotic aneurysm formation. We describe a case of cardiac myxoma presenting with stroke having bilateral cerebral infarct and oncotic aneurysm formation. Myxomatous emboli have characteristic CT, MR and angiography findings, which are well seen in this case. The pathogenesis, imaging features, clinical presentation and natural history are discussed.
