BACKGROUND: Calcified amorphous tumor of the heart is a rare, non-neoplastic cardiac mass characterized by nodular calcium in the background of amorphous degenerating fibrinous material. Clinical diagnosis of calcified amorphous tumor can be difficult, and current single imaging techniques do not specifically differentiate calcified amorphous tumor from other cardiac tumors such as calcified atrial myxoma, calcified thrombi, or vegetation. Complete surgical resection is the treatment of choice for both symptom improvement and prevention of embolization, as well as for pathological diagnosis...

Primary cardiac tumors are a rare entity whose incidence in the general population ranges from 0.0017% to 0.28%. Myxomas represent nearly half of all primary benign cardiac tumors and they prevalently affect female patients. Embolic manifestation is rare with a reported incidence of 0.06%.We present the case of a 30-year-old male patient with acute anterolateral infarction caused by total occlusion of the left anterior descending artery as a consequence of a left atrial myxoma embolization. Urgent surgical resection of the mass didn't avoid early recurrence of atrial myxoma, whose second presentation was again myocardial infarction...

Myxoma is a rare cause of severe mitral stenosis. We describe a challenging case of severe mitral stenosis and reversible pulmonary hypertension produced by a giant left atrial myxoma. The greatest risk is a diagnostic delay due to focus on discarding a pulmonary etiology of dyspnea. Physical examination and early echocardiographic assessment are the keys to avoid overlooking this uncommon pathology.

INTRODUCTION: Cardiac myxoma is a benign neoplasm representing the most common primary cardiac tumor in adults, however it is unusual in neonates. It is represented by an endocardial mass that occupies the cardiac chamber. Although the majority of myxomas are attached to the fossa ovalis of the interatrial septum, they also attach to the walls of the cardiac chambers and to valve leaflets surfaces. Approximately 75% of myxomas are found in the left atrium, 20% are located in the right atrium, and rarely in the ventricles...

Left atrial myxoma could be a rare cause of cardiac arrest as this mass could impinge on the mitral orifice causing left ventricular inflow tract obstruction.

PURPOSE: To summarize the clinical, radiographic, and intraoperative characteristics of isolated neurofibromas of the orbit (INFO) in the literature and report a case of INFO. METHODS: Case report and a systematic review of the literature. RESULTS: A total of 45 patients were identified from 18 previous studies. There was no sex predilection and mean ages were between 32.3 and 40.0 years with a standard deviation of 9.8 to 19.5 years, median age was 32 to 38 years with a range of 1...

Tumor-like formation of thrombus in the right atrial cavity is rare. It may be mistaken for a myxoma. The exact pathophysiology of an isolated thrombus in the heart is still unclear. Management to prevent complications such as pulmonary thromboembolism depends on the clinical judgment of a cardiologist. This report describes a 76-year-old woman with right atrial thrombus causing subsequent pulmonary thromboembolism in right lung. She initially presented to us with pulmonary embolism, and later, an incidental finding of a mass in her right atrium revealed an association of thrombus in heart with thrombus in lung...

This case report concerns a young woman who, during her pregnancy, suffered severe mitral regurgitation. It was discovered at the same time that she had a left atrial myxoma. During the early postpartum period she successfully underwent an anterior minithoracotomy to remove the left atrial myxoma in conjunction with repair of the mitral valve. The thoracotomy approach in this specific patient was chosen as it would give a better chance of successful mother-child bonding because the patient would be able to avoid the precautions which would have been necessary following a sternotomy, especially the limitation of her ability to hold her child during the first 4-6 weeks postoperatively...

A 79 year-old-man presented three episodes of upper gastrointestinal bleeding and weight loss. Endoscopy revealed bleeding and extrinsic compression at the pyloric region. Computed tomography scan showed a pancreatic tumor, peritoneal carcinomatosis, vascular infiltration, and incidentally found a partially calcified hypodense lesion of 35 mm in the left atrium, suggesting a myxoma or a thrombus. Echocardiography revealed moderate left atrium enlargement, dilated left atrial appendage with spontaneous echo contrast, moderate dilatation and dysfunction of the left ventricle, ejection fraction was 39%, and an atrial septal aneurysm in which a piriform, mass of 35×33×25 mm, was "sitting," suggesting an organized thrombus...

Myxoma is the most common tumor in the heart. A typical myxoma is relatively straightforward to diagnose. However, certain cardiac myxomas have rare features. We report three extremely rare cases of cardiac myxoma. One case involved a myxoma that originated from the annulus of the tricuspid after valvuloplasty, one case involved myxomas associated with left atrial thrombus and severe mitral stenosis, and the third case involved myxoma combined with severe calcification. All three cases were diagnosed by echocardiography and pathology...

BACKGROUND: Corynebacterium striatum is a member of the non-diphtherial corynebacteria, which are ubiquitous in nature and generally colonize the skin and mucous membranes of humans. Rarely, it causes infective endocarditis (IE). We report a case of rare left atrial bacterial vegetative mass due to C. striatum masquerading as a myxoma identified through a tortuous diagnostic process, and present a brief review of the relevant literature. CASE PRESENTATION: We present a case of 63-year-old man who presented with progressively worsening dyspnea on exertion and lower leg edema, and was diagnosed with heart failure...

A novel minimally invasive technique for left atrial myxoma surgery involving a combination of mini-sternotomy and restricted left atrial dome incision is described. Surgery is performed through a mini-J sternotomy at third intercostal space and a standard aorto-right atrial cannulation. Exposure of cardiac mass is obtained by a restricted incision of the left atrial dome which provides excellent view of the entire interatrial septum. Base of the tumor base is clearly visualized making the en-bloc excision extremely easy...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac myxoma is known to cause repeated events of cerebral embolism. Soft and irregularly shaped myxomas with high mobility are associated with a higher occurrence of cerebral embolism. In contrast, nonmobile cardiac myxomas with a round regular shape are rarely considered to be a cause of cerebral embolism. In this case, we present a patient with recurrent cerebral embolism associated with a small and nonmobile cardiac myxoma of round regular shape. CASE PRESENTATION: A 76-year-old Japanese man presented to our hospital with weakness in his right upper extremity...
