Abstract

Cardiac hemangioma is a rare primary benign tumour, localised in the right atrium in 23% of cases. In a 60-year-old patient, who complained of remote chest discomfort and recent exertional palpitation, a right atrial mass was discovered by magnetic resonance imaging and echocardiography. A selective operation was performed and the tumour was resected. Histology revealed it to be a cavernous hemangioma. Due to the potential risks associated with cardiac hemangioma, surgical resection and postoperative follow-up are recommended.
