Abstract

Bechet's Disease Presenting with a Large Right Atrial Thrombus

We present a case of a 52-year-old female patient who presented with dyspnea and non-typical chest pain in whom further investigation revealed a large right atrial thrombus. Considering the absence of hemodynamic compromise and lack of cardiac surgery in Najran, we used medical management which consisted of immunosuppression and anticoagulation. On a follow-up period of 12 months we observed complete dissolution of the thrombus and dramatic improvement of clinical status.
