Asherson syndrome is characterized by simultaneous thrombotic events in multiple organ systems. We present a case of a 60 year old woman with a history of a mitral mechanical prosthetic valve that developed a cerebrovascular event. In the transesophageal echocardiographic study thrombi in left atrium adhered to interatrial septum and in the left atrial appendage were found. Immediately the diagnosis was established she received adequate treatment and she went home in NYHA functional class II.
