Intravascular leiomyomatosis (IVL) is a benign smooth muscle tumor that evolves from the pelvic veins and can spread to the central veins and heart. Cardiac involvement is the most commonly reported presentation. Initial diagnosis is difficult, and IVL is commonly misdiagnosed as thrombus or atrial myxoma. Appropriate imaging and a high clinical suspicion are required for accurate diagnosis. We report a rare case of IVL in the external iliac vein that recurred 4 years after hysterectomy. Only four cases have been reported in the literature to involve the external iliac vein as it has no direct connection to pelvic venous drainage...

Poxviruses are large, DNA viruses whose protein capsid is surrounded by one or more lipid envelopes. Embedded into these lipid envelopes are three conserved viral proteins which are thought to mediate binding of virions to target cells. While the function of these proteins has been studied in vitro, their specific roles during the pathogenesis of poxviral disease remains largely unclear. Here we present data demonstrating that the putative chondroitin binding protein, M083, from the leporipoxvirus myxoma is a significant virulence factor during infection of susceptible Oryctolagus rabbits...

Cardiac myxomas are rare tumors. Esophageal adenocarcinomas are common tumors of the gastrointestinal tract. Simultaneous occurrence of these tumors has not been reported. A 52-year-old gentleman presented to our hospital with dysphagia and was diagnosed with esophageal adenocarcinoma. Routine echocardiography discovered a cardiac tumor in the left atrium. The cardiac tumor was surgically removed and biopsy confirmed a myxoma. We removed the cardiac tumor as the first step and then initiated neoadjuvant chemotherapy...

Ischemic stroke is uncommon in pediatric populations and is sometimes caused by cardiac myxoma. In such cases, neurological deficits initially present in ischemic stroke due to emboli or thrombi of the myxoma. Echocardiography is helpful to diagnose myxoma in a timely manner and allows urgent surgical resection of the myxoma. We report a successful case of myxoma in a 7-year-old boy who initially presented with left-sided hemiparesis.

Large intracavitary masses such as those occupying most of a cardiac chamber and obstructing blood flow are not routinely encountered in clinical practice. The differential diagnosis includes neoplastic as well as nonneoplastic causes. Primary cardiac tumors by themselves are uncommon. We hereby report a rare case of a middle-aged female presenting with New York Heart Association Class III symptoms, whose transthoracic echocardiogram revealed a huge mass in right-sided chambers with a novel double ball valve type movement...

Cardiac myxomas are benign neoplasm of the heart with an incidence of 0.3%. Glandular cardiac myxomas are very rare and accounts for less than 3% of all cardiac myxomas. Here, we report a case of familial glandular cardiac myxoma in a 35 year old male who complained of exertional dyspneoa and weakness of right side of body on clinical presentation. Associated features of Carney's complex were not present. Family history revealed presence of cardiac myxoma in younger brother and sister. Transthoracic echocardiography detected biatrial myxoma...

Although a small number of atrial myxomas are found in association with congenital cardiac defects, ventricular myxomas coexisting with congenital cardiac anomalies are extremely rare. We report a case of right ventricular (RV) myxoma coexistent with atrioventricular septal defect in an adolescent. Echocardiography showed an RV mass, a small ostium primum atrial septal defect, and a cleft of the left atrioventricular valve. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a mass, suggesting a myxoma. The mass was excised simultaneously with repair of the anomalies and was histologically confirmed as a myxoma...

The most common primary cardiac tumor is myxoma, typically originating in the left atrium. Emboli to the central nervous system can cause cerebral infarction or, rarely, seed tumor growth within vessel walls, causing myxomatous aneurysms. Fewer than 60 myxomatous aneurysms have been reported, including 2 cases in children. Here, the authors describe 2 different growing myxomatous aneurysms in a child successfully managed using a combined multidisciplinary approach. A 12-year-old boy developed a sudden headache, diplopia, gait instability, and speech difficulty...

Renal myxoma is a very rare benign neoplasm seen almost exclusively in adults with only 16 reported cases in the literature. All of these cases have been reported in native kidneys with none being reported in a transplant kidney. We report the case of a renal myxoma in a 17-year-old boy's transplant kidney that was found as an incidental mass on ultrasonography and further evaluated with CT and PET scans. PET findings of a renal myxoma are reported here for the first time, and imaging findings from previous cases are briefly reviewed...

BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical presentation, operative data, and early and late outcomes of a large patient cohort undergoing surgical treatment for cardiac tumors in our institution. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 181 patients underwent surgery because of suspected cardiac tumor in our institution between 1998 and 2016. In 162 cases, the diagnosis was confirmed postoperatively and these patients were included in this study. Preoperative baseline characteristics, operative data, and postoperative early and long-term outcomes were analyzed...

Left atrial appendage mass can occasionally pose a serious challenge to physicians to identify the nature of the mass with the aid of imaging techniques. We present a case of 67-year-old man, who was evaluated for suspected left atria myxoma. Transesophageal echocardiography revealed a heterogeneous density originating from left atrial appendage, thought to be most consistent with a myxoma. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, uncharacteristically, gave an equivocal picture, suggesting the mass to be a myxoma on initial imaging and a thrombus with evidence of liquefaction necrosis following postcontrast enhancement...

BACKGROUND: Myxomas are the most frequent cardiac tumours. Their diagnosis requires prompt removal. In our centre, for valve surgery we use a minimally invasive approach. Here, we report our experience of cardiac myxoma removal through right lateral mini-thoracotomy (RLMT) with particular focus on its feasibility, efficacy and patient safety. METHODS: Between February 2006 and January 2017, 30 consecutive patients (aged 66±12.6years, range 35-83 years) underwent atrial myxoma resection through video-assisted RLMT...

Bilateral recurrence of atrial myxoma has been reported only a few times. We describe the case of a 41-year-old woman who had undergone left atrial myxoma resection and presented 9 years later with myxomas in both atria. The patient underwent successful resection of both masses with resolution of symptoms. We discuss the phenomenon of recurrent biatrial myxoma.

Ali Sait Kavakli, Nilgun Kavrut Ozturk
Atrial myxoma is a benign tumor of the heart that occurs primarily in the left atrium. Floating or large left atrial myxomas frequently cause functional mitral stenosis, may also affect mitral valve structure and flow, and lead to mitral regurgitation. Systemic embolization occurs in around 30% of cases either from tumor fragmentation or complete tumor detachment hence it should be removed as soon as it is detected. Intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography has a vital importance in the surgery. After resection of myxoma, intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography must be performed to rule out residual mass...

Surgical resection is the conventional therapeutic action for patients with an obstructive cardiac tumor. However, for patients in poor clinical condition, cardiac surgery can be risky. We report on the successful percutaneous radiofrequency (RF) ablation treatment of a right ventricular giant myxoma in a 70-year-old female with right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) and pulmonary artery stenosis, who was unable to tolerate surgery. The treatment was effective in relieving RVOT stenosis and improving symptoms...

Myxomas are rare in the vocal cords. A 69-year-old man was admitted with one-year history of progressive dysphonia. Laryngoscopy revealed a polypoid mass on the right vocal cord. The diagnosis was cellular myxoma. A review of the literature including the present case revealed eleven reported cases of myxoma. Ten cases were classic myxoma. To the best of our knowledge, cellular myxoma has not been previously reported in the vocal cord. Hypercellularity does not affect the behavior of cellular myxoma. However, its recognition is important to prevent confusion with the group of low-grade myxoid sarcomas...
