We describe a 67-year-old man with a history of stroke who was found to have a mass at the left atrial ridge, at the free wall of the left atrium between the left atrial appendage and the pulmonary vein. The mass was removed surgically and pathological analysis showed fibroelastoma. A literature search showed that fibroelastoma in the left atrial ridge frequently causes embolic stroke.
