Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis have an increased incidence of cardiovascular disease. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) confers a prothrombotic state and is associated with venous thrombosis, but its association with arterial thrombosis and embolism is not clear. In present report, we introduce a unique case of a 42-year-old woman with RA, who was admitted to the emergency service with back pain and diagnosed as having large right and left ventricular thrombus and myocardial infarction, associated with embolization of the thrombus. We also review the literature about RA and arterial and intraventricular thrombosis.
