Abstract

A case of a 66-year-old male hospitalised due to heart failure is presented. Echocardiography showed an abnormal structure in the right atrium resembling myxoma or thrombus. Abdominal ultrasonography revealed a right renal tumor. Finally, magnethic resonance imaging showed that the abnormal structure in the right atrium was a neoplasmatic plug continuously extending from renal carcinoma. The renal tumor and it’s metastatic plug were succesfully removed during surgery.
