CARDIAC TUMORS, A CASE REPORT

Abstract

Benign and malignant tumors of heart are very
uncommon and their diagnosis was very much
challenging for physicians since the seventeenth
century.Primary tumors of heart are very rare with an
incidence of in autopsy series reported to be between
0.001 to 0.03 percent.Most patients with myxoma are 30-60 years of age
although myxoma have been discovered in children,
infants and neonate and the elderly. Children10 have
higher incidence of ventricular myxoma than to
adults.It is very interesting to find cardiac tumors in this age
group, only few cases have been reported. Neonate
myxomas are extremely rare, this is the only case for
the last twenty year in this lab. where 20-30 cases are
referred for echocardiography every day.
