Abstract

Cardiac hemangiomas are extremely rare benign tumors. These tumors are usually asymptomatic but they can present symptoms such as palpitations, shortness of breath, and arrythmia. We report the case of a 73-year-old man who presented with an abnormal shadow on chest computed tomography during follow-up for lung metastatic tumor after resection of his rectal cancer. A cardiac tumor was detected, and surgical resection and right ventricular plasty were successfully performed with the patient under cardiopulmonary bypass. Histopathologic examination revealed a benign cardiac hemangioma, which was categorized as a hemangioma of the mixed cavernous and capillary type.
