It is believed that there is an association between mitral valve prolapse, septal aneurysm and cerebral embolism. The real threat of cerebral stroke in patients with mitral valve prolapse or septal aneurysm is unknown. We present a case of a young woman with two previously described heart anomalies, who developed ischemic stroke during anticonception therapy.
