There are two types of tumors found in the cardiac chamber. These are divided into primary intra-cardiac tumors and secondary intra-cardiac tumors. Primary intra cardiac tumors are rare and among them 29% are myxomas. Majority of them are found in the left atrium. Here, we report a case of a myxoma in the right atrium with hepatomegaly and Hepatitis B virus infection. The coexistence of all these conditions is very rare. A 52 years old patient presented with history of shortness of breath on exertion along with fever and generalized weakness for 6 months which aggravated lately for last 2 months...

BACKGROUND: To retrospectively evaluate mitral valve abnormality in left atrial myxoma patients by using cardiac computed tomography (CT). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Cardiac CT was performed in 56 patients with left atrial myxoma and 50 controls. Tumor and mitral valve characteristics were analyzed. The mitral valve parameters differences were compared between patients with myxoma and controls, myxoma with or without mitral valve obstruction, different obstruction degrees, respectively...

Myxomas are rare neoplasms of mesenchymal origin. Cases of conjunctival, corneal, and orbital myxomas have been reported in the literature; however, to the best of our knowledge, there is no report of a lacrimal gland myxoma. We report a case of an orbital myxoma involving the lacrimal gland and its management.

This systematic review sought to investigate the current evidence regarding surgical management of primary cardiac tumors in children and adolescents. Twenty-eight studies were deemed eligible, reporting on 745 pediatric patients. Rhabdomyoma was the most prevalent histologic type and echocardiography was the most common diagnostic tool. Cumulative 30-day mortality rate was 6.7%. Rhabdomyomas and teratomas had the highest 30-day mortality. The higher percentage of tumor relapse was noted for myxoma and teratoma...

Cardiac myxomas are rare clinical findings. They are frequently found in the left atrium and more commonly affect women. Clinical presentation can vary widely and symptoms can be vague and non-specific. We present a case of a 67-year-old woman presenting with 3 weeks of progressive heart failure symptoms that failed to respond to oral diuretic therapy. On physical exam, she was found to have a diastolic murmur, rumble and an early diastolic plop. Transthoracic echocardiogram revealed a 5.6 cm × 2.5 cm × 4...

Odontogenic myxomas are rarely occurring, slow-growing, asymptomatic, and locally aggressive odontogenic tumors with high rate of recurrence, mainly of ectomesenchymal origin. Three-dimensional imaging techniques can be used to diagnose such pathological lesions, but have limited use as they are not cost-effective and are selectively available for better outcome. Following is a case report of OM of a 5-year-old child with a brief discussion on its diagnosis and management. HOW TO CITE THIS ARTICLE: Mukherjee CG, Mukherjee U, Bansal A, Jha A...

A therapeutic approach to improve treatment outcome of ovarian cancer (OC) in patients is urgently needed. Myxoma virus (MYXV) is a candidate oncolytic virus that infects to eliminate OC cells. We found that in vitro MYXV treatment enhances cisplatin or gemcitabine treatment by allowing lower doses than the corresponding IC50 calculated for primary OC cells. MYXV also affected OC patient ascites-associated CD14(+) myeloid cells, one of the most abundant immunological components of the OC tumor environment; without causing cell death, MYXV infection reduces the ability of these cells to secrete cytokines such as IL-10 that are signatures of the immunosuppressive tumor environment...

Carney Complex (CNC) is a multiple neoplasia syndrome characterized by skin tumors and pigmented lesions, myxomas, and various endocrine tumors. The aim of this case report was to describe a case of CNC with a novel PRKAR1A mutation. A man aged 46 years with a medical history of surgery for cardiac myxomas at the age of 39 was admitted to our hospital because of four newly-developed heart masses. The histologic examination confirmed cardiac myxomas. He had many presentations of CNC such as growth hormone (GH) and prolactin (PRL)-secreting mixed pituitary adenoma, benign thyroid nodule, large-cell calcifying Sertoli cell tumor (LCCST), and superficial angiomyxoma...

BACKGROUND: Atrial myxoma accounts for approximately 50% of all cardiac tumors. The majority of myxomas are located in the left atrium and present variable clinical manifestation. CASE PRESENTATION: A young man was transferred to our hospital with sudden onset of resting pain, pallor and numb in right leg. An atrial mobile mass was detected by transthoracic echocardiography. Anticoagulant and antithrombotic therapy were administered, a timely surgery was performed and the mass was confirmed as a myxoma...

Mazabraud syndrome is a very rare benign disorder characterized by the association of monostotic or polyostotic fibrous dysplasia and one or multiple intramuscular myxomas. McCune -Albright syndrome is a rare benign disorder characterized by the association of polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, cafè-au-lait skin pigmentations and endocrine dysfunction, such as precocious puberty, diabetes mellitus, goiter and breast fibroadenomatosis. The association of Mazabraud syndrome and McCune-Albright in the same patient is an anecdotal event...

The development of left atrial myxoma after coronary artery bypass graft surgery is a rare entity. A 60-year-old man with previous off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting four years ago with patent coronary grafts was diagnosed with left atrial mass. The patient underwent successful resection of the same through minimally invasive right anterolateral thoracotomy. Histopathology of the atrial mass confirmed the diagnosis of atrial myxoma.

We present a case of an intensely hypermetabolic intracavitary cardiac mass, standardized uptake values max 44.4, that was pathologically proved to be organizing and organized thrombus, negative for tumor. Our patient had previous right atrial mass resection 2 years prior that was pathologically described as either thrombus or infarcted atrial myxoma. She had since been on lifelong controlled anticoagulation; and on routine follow-up imaging, she had recurrent slow growth of a new right atrial mass. During a later hospital admission for chest pain, the mass was evaluated on both transthoracic and transesophageal echo cardiogram, which could not differentiate thrombus vs neoplasm...

We experienced a giant biatrial myxoma concomitant with hepatocellular carcinoma. Most of myxomas originate from the left atrium, and biatrial myxomas are extremely rare. Excision of the giant cardiac tumor was performed to avoid risks of life-threatening complications. The resected mass was grossly composed of two parts with the border of interatrial septum and with the shape of peanut shell. Although microscopic examinations revealed enlarged vessels, hemorrhages and hemosiderosis in the left part and high cellularity with chronic inflammation in the right part, spindle-shaped cells in a loose myxoid stroma were observed in both parts of the tumor, consistent with the diagnosis of myxoma...

Left atrial myxomas are the most common type of benign primary cardiac tumor. Patients can present with generalized symptoms, such as fatigue, symptoms from obstruction of the myxoma, or even embolization of the myxoma causing distal thrombosis. We describe a case with several-month duration of syncopal episodes that occurred after coughing and with exertion. Computed tomography of the chest showed a 6.1 cm by 4.5 cm mass in the left atrium, later evaluated with an echocardiogram. Cardiothoracic surgery removed the mass, and it was determined to be an atrial myxoma...

Pulmonary vein thrombosis (PVT) is a challenging diagnosis and has been described in association with or as a complication of pulmonary tumors, lung surgeries, atrial myxoma, and after radiofrequency catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation. There are not many reported cases of PVT associated with medication use. We present a case of a 53-year-old male with a history of severe persistent asthma on omalizumab, who presented with shortness of breath and was found to have PVT on computed tomography scan of the chest...
