A mobile plaque in the carotid artery is an uncommon entity, usually detected incidentally on a carotid duplex scan or angiography. It is associated with an indeterminate risk of an embolic stroke and should be managed on an emergent basis. We report here a case of a mobile plaque in the internal carotid artery that was detected serendipitously in a carotid duplex scan.
