Rights and Permissions

Cardiac thrombus is not an established contraindication to thrombolysis with intravenous tissue plasminogen activator in acute ischemic stroke. Recurrent ischemic stroke involving an initially unaffected arterial territory during the course of thrombolysis in stroke has been reported, but remains exceptionally rare. We present a case that developed cardioembolic stroke on the previously unaffected side during thrombolysis for acute ischemic stroke.
