Thrombus in transit straddling foramen ovale with impending systemic embolization is a rare event. Most cases are reported during the evaluation of stroke. Such thrombus in patients presenting with pulmonary embolism is extremely rare. We report such a rare case with large thrombus extending from the right atrium to left atrium through patent foramen ovale, prolapsing across mitral valve up to mid left ventricle.
