Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The case refers to a 73 year old female who presented with splenic infarctions. This was found to be secondary to a floating thrombus in the ascending aorta. There have only been a few cases in literature describing an aortic thrombus without a coagulopathy. After searching the literature we believe this is the first descriptive case of a patient with Giant Cell Arteritis with a floating aortic thrombus.
