Abstract

Nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis (NBTE) is a rare condition which most often accompanies a malignant disease and involves a hypercoagulable state. We report the incidental finding of a scarce case of NBTE affecting the tricuspid valve in a patient with metastatic pancreatic carcinoma complicated by severe venous and arterial thromboembolisms.
