Abstract

Primary cardiac tumours are rare. Cardiac fibroma is a benign tumour of the heart. It is fairly common among children and adolescents and is rarely encountered in adults. We present the case of a thirty-eight year old lady who presented with shortness of breath and was found to have a very large intra-cardiac mass that had cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) features consistent with cardiac fibroma. The patient was referred for tumour resection, however could not survive the surgery.
