Abstract

A 17-year-old girl without any cardiac symptoms and with no previous history of cardiovascular disease was diagnosed to have an intracardiac tumour. The diagnosis was made by chance during two-dimensional echocardiography which showed a mobile, peduncular tumour, 2 cm in diameter, arising from the apex of the left ventricle. The patient underwent successful surgery.
