Inherited thrombophilias are a group of inheritable conditions that predispose individuals to venous or arterial thrombosis like deficiencies of the endogenous anticoagulants protein S, protein C, antithrombin, etc. Protein S deficiency is associated with a well-documented risk of venous thromboembolism but arterial thrombotic and thromboembolic events are very rare. Intracardiac masses are mass lesions present in either ventricles or atrium and include benign or malignant cardiac tumors, thrombus, or vegetation as well as infectious and nonbacterial thrombotic or marantic endocarditis. Cardioembolic stroke has been reported previously in patients with intracardiac masses like atrial myxoma, cardiac sarcoma, mitral stenosis with atrial fibrillation but very rare in Protein S deficiency. We report a case of embolic ischemic stroke due to intracardiac mass in a known case of protein S deficiency.
