Left ventricular (LV) thrombosis is caused by multiple etiological factors. Acute anterior wall myocardial infarction tops the list. Acute inferior wall infarction is not commonly associated with LV thrombus formation. A rare case of LV thrombus formation at LV apex due to acute inferior wall myocardial infarction is described in a young adult with successful resolution on medical therapy. Appropriate cardiac imaging is the key in correct diagnosis and treatment.
