PMID:  7606899     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We describe an unusual case of malignant thromboembolization within the aortic arch of a 56-year-old man who presented with a stroke. The uncommon source of this malignant embolus was an adrenal phaeochromocytoma which had permeated the inferior vena cava, metastasized into the pleural cavity and colonized the intimal surfaces of the aortic arch and carotid vessels. The relevant literature has been briefly reviewed.
