Giant right ventricular thrombus is a rare characteristic of pulmonary thrombosis-embolism that is typically associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbation. We found such a giant right ventricular thrombus in a patient who was a heavy smoker who had extreme type of COPD with cor pulmonale. He also had hypotension, hypoxia, low tolerance for exercise, congestive heart failure, and poor quality of life, which are the prognostic qualities in the patient's clinical scenario we mentioned.
