Abstract :

Cocaine abuse can cause acute and chronic cardiovascular complications which include, coronary artery spasm , aortic dissection, myocardial infraction, left ventricular dysfunction and thrombosis that can lead to fatal thromboembolic event. It has been well described in the literature that cocaine significanlty increases the risk of ischemic stroke in young adults within 24 hours of use. Interestingly the risk of cerebral infarct relating to acute cocaine comsuption is notably higher than the usuall well known stroke risk factors. A 32 years old gentleman who is known to have history of cocaine abuse, presented with an acute stroke, myocardial infraction and significant large left ventricular thrombus which took place within short time window following cocaine abuse.
