Cardiac rhabdomyomas occur exclusively in infancy and childhood and result in myocardial depression, inflow or outwlow obstruction, rhythm and conduction disturbances. We report a case of cardiac rhabdomyoma in a 42-year-old woman. Her presenting symptom was heart failure. A diagnosis of heart tumor was suspected by two-dimensional echocardiography which showed a left ventricular mass and pericardial effusion. The diagnosis was confirmed by right atrial biopsy.
