Persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) is a common venous anomaly of the thorax and usually drains into the right atrium. Less often it drains into the left atrium and has previously been related to ischemic stroke. We report a case of PLSCV that founded during ischemic stroke evaluation in a 77-year-old woman which was detected on transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) and transcranial Doppler ultrasonography (TCD) with saline agitated test and computed tomography.
Key words: Persistent left superior vena cava; Cerebra infarction; Saline agitation test; Paradoxical embolism; Transcranial Doppler ultrasonography; Transesophageal echocardiography
