Here, we present a case of a previously well patient who developed severe cold agglutinin hemolytic anemia during the course of COVID-19 infection. Although there were no throm...

In this rare case we describe a 56-year-old woman who presented with an acute pulmonary embolism (PE) complicated by right heart strain indicating the need for catheter-directed mechanical thrombectomy. Pre-operative two dimensional (2D) transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) showed no evidence of intracardiac thrombi. Subsequently, post-operative 2D TTE indicated large biatrial thrombi with no evidence of PFO, or other intracardiac shunt. Here, we describe this rare and unique presentation and disc...
