Abstract

If acute or severe infectious are know that risk factors for venous thromboembolism (VTE), the role active tuberculosis is ill defined, despite different case reports and many small case series have proposed an association between VTE and chronic infectious such as tuberculosis. We are highlighting an exceptional phenomenon correlation between intra-cardiac thromboembolism and pulmonary tuberculosis and concluded that active tuberculosis should include in the physician's evaluation of intra-cardiac thromboembolism risk.
