Resumo Alteplase (recombinant tissue plasminogen activator [rt-PA]) label approval by the Food and Drug Administration remarks the contraindication of its use with known intracranial neoplasm because of potential bleeding complications. Despite this concern, the real risk of intracerebral bleeding in patients with intracranial neoplasms treated with rt-PA is unknown, and there are few reports of thrombolysis in patients with brain tumors. We report a case of a 78-year-old man who was seen in our emergency department within 2 hours from sudden onset of aphasia, right-sided hemiplegia, hypoesthesia, and homonymous hemianopsia. the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) score at admission was 20. Intra-arterial thrombolysis was performed with administration of .3 mg/kg of alteplase combined with mechanical thrombectomy. At discharge, his NIHSS score was 1, and after 90 days, his modified Rankin score was 1. To our knowledge, this is the first report of intra-arterial thrombolysis in a patient with acute ischemic stroke with an intracranial tumor.
