A 40-year-old man with cerebral embolic and vascular accident due to a left ventricular myxoma was diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiography, cineangioventriculography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging techniques. At the surgery, a polypoid gelatinous and lobulated tumor was extirpated by left ventriculotomy and histopathological diagnosis was myxoma. Patient's postoperative course was uneventful. He was checked by transthoracic echocardiography two and eight months after discharge and there was no new growth. Although left ventricular myxomas are very rare, some recurrences after surgery were reported, so careful follow-up is always necessary.
