Abstract

A case of a 30 year old male with primary intracardiac rhabdomyosarcoma is presented. The clinical manifestations were the following: constitutional symptoms of cough, fever and weight loss, left sided congestive heart failure, symptoms of dyspnea on exertion, orthopnea and chest pain, and right sided failure symptoms of bipedal edema, ascites and congestive hepatomegaly. Echocardiography was able to demonstrate the size, shape and origin of the tumor and the extent of its invasion. Surgical debulking procedure was done for relief of mechanical obstruction.
