Abstract:   (496 Views)

Background: Primary cardiac tumors are rare (0.001 to 0.03%). Malignant tumors account for 25%, of which 75% are cardiac sarcomas.
Case Persentation: Here, we report a case of a 57-year-old male with palpitation and history of left atrial (LA) myxoma resection presented to cardiology clinic for postsurgical follow up and transthoracic echocardiography revealed a large non-homogenous mass in LA with right atrium invasion, which was confirmed by trans-esophageal echocardiography. The patient underwent surgical resection of tumor and the pathological diagnosis was malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH).
Conclusion: MFH could be asymptomatic and the diagnosis be established as a surgical or complementary examination. In patients with history of myxoma resection and cardiac masses, further evaluation is recommended.
