BACKGROUND: Intravenous leiomyomatosis is a rare tumor originating from the uterus that spreads through vessels. This tumor, while histologically benign, can cause fatal cardiovascular symptoms resulting from growth within the heart cavity. CASE: A 51-year-old woman with chronic hypertension was found to have a murmur. Echocardiogram, magnetic resonance imaging, and clinical evaluation revealed an intravenous leiomyomatosis extending to the right ventricle. The appropriate therapy for intravenous leiomyomatosis is complete resection. In this patient, one-stage cardiotomy with laparotomy resulted in successful radical removal of the tumor. CONCLUSION: Our patient underwent successful radical therapy for an intravenous leiomyomatosis extending to the heart, which involved complete resection of the tumor by one-stage cardiotomy with laparotomy.
