Abstract

Left ventricular myxoma is particulary rare. Our case is a 77-year-old female. Transesophageal echocardiography showed a giant tumor in the left atrium. An urgent operation was performed. A giant mass was excised en bloc via a transinteratrial septal approach. Histopathologically it was myxoma. As a transthoracic echocardiography at 1-year postoperation showed a tumor in the left ventricle. A mass was excised en bloc via a vertical approach. Histopathologically it was diagnosed again as myxoma. We looked at the earliest transesophageal echocardiogram again, and found the small tumor on the same area under the posterior mitral leaflet. At the diagnose of cardiac tumor, possibility of multiple formation should be always considered.
