We report on a case of a 59-year-old female patient with atrial fibrillation who received edoxaban. She withdrew edoxaban before tooth extraction. She was brought to our emergency department due to acute onset of left-side weakness. Under the impression of acute ischemic stroke, edoxaban was replaced with aspirin. However, the patient suffered from recurrent cerebral embolism with conscious disturbance. Urgent mechanical thrombectomy was performed due to left internal carotid artery occlusion. Remarkable recovery was noted on the second day after thrombectomy. She was discharged with mild neurological deficit. We suggest that early recognition, assessment, and interventional treatment for patients with in-hospital strokes are favorable for stroke outcome.
