Abstract

A 65-year-old man presented with two transient ischaemic attacks, and was then found to have a deep vein thrombosis. He later had recurrent ischaemic strokes. After thorough investigation, the only cause we identified was a previously undiagnosed metastatic pancreatic cancer. We describe the assessment of this presentation and discuss the causes and management of cancer-related stroke.
