Concurrent Pulmonary and Cerebral Embolism: Is Tricuspid Valve Endocarditis the Culprit?

An unusual case of tricuspid endocarditis complicated by PE and massive ischemic stroke is reported. Transthoracic echocardiography and brain CT scan were the imaging techniques used to diagnose this rare condition.
