Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 13-month-old infant developed acute hemiparesis in the course of myocarditis. Cranial CT suggested occlusion of the right middle cerebral artery, and it is believed that an embolus arising from a mural thrombus is the most likely cause of the cerebral vascular accident. Anticoagulant therapy should be considered in myocarditis when myocardial ischemic damage or an intracavitary thrombus are suspected.
