A 52-year-old woman presented with dysarthria and right-sided weakness in her upper and lower extremities prompting thrombolytic therapy with mild resolution of symptoms. Further work-up revealed (the source) a left ventricular myxoma on the chordae tendinae of the posterior medial papillary muscle, confirmed with transesophageal echocardiography and pathology. Herein, we present a rare case of embolic stroke from a myxoma originating on the chordae tendinae. To the best of our knowledge, the literature on the location and presentation of this tumor as seen in our patient is sparse in contemporary findings.
