Abstract
We report the case of a 37-year-old man with a history of Hodgkin lymphoma and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, seen because of a transient ischaemic attack with symptoms of temporary aphasia. Transoesophageal echocardiography could not detect a patent foramen ovale. However, CT thorax and flebography showed bilateral occlusion of both subclavian veins and the superior vena cava with an important collateral venous network, most likely responsible for this rare case of acquired cryptogenic stroke.
