Left atrial myxoma is a rare cause of cardioembolic stroke in adults and when stroke occurs, it is mainly due to arterial embolism in cerebral vessels. Cerebral infarction is the first clinical manifestation in one-third of cases. We report a 24-year-old female patient with left atrial myxoma, and no other conventional vascular risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes or hyperlipidaemia. The patient presented with multiple infarctions as the first clinical manifestation and was diagnosed with a left atrial myxoma. The literature on similar cases was also reviewed.
