Non-bacterial thrombotic endocarditis is a rare condition characterized by the formation of thrombotic vegetations on heart valve leaflets, leading to valvular dysfunction, heart failure and thromboembolic events. It is known to be associated with other diseases and some cases remain undiagnosed or can be diagnosed in the postmortem analysis. Surgical excision of the mass may be necessary to prevent further embolic events and other complications. In this article, we report a young patient with non-bacterial thrombotic endocarditis, whose medical history was significant for primary hypoparathyroidism and a positive family history of coagulation disorders.
