Abstract We report two cases of left ventricular thrombi identified by routine echocardiography in the presence of normal ventricular function to highlight the rarity and clinical significance of this condition. A 14-year-old boy, positive for anticardiolipin and antinuclear antibodies, was found to have a left ventricular thrombus. A 30-year-old male, who presented with a transient ischemic attack, was found to have hypereosinophilic syndrome and a mobile left ventricular thrombus. The thrombi disappeared in both patients after a few days of anticoagulant therapy without symptoms of embolization.
