A twelve-year-old girl presented with tachypnoea, cough and fatigue existing for 3 weeks, which subsequently proved to be caused by dilated cardiomyopathy. Echocardiography showed an echogenic mass with echolucent centre attached to the inferolateral wall of the left ventricle. There was prominent systolic dysfunction. Dilated cardiomyopathy is associated with an increased risk of intracardiac thrombosis. The intracardiac thrombi usually appear as a solid mass on the echocardiogram. The case was presented to emphasize the unususal echocardiographic appearance of an intracardiac thrombus associated with dilated cardiomyopathy.
