SILVA, Ricardo P et al. Cardiac tumor in a middle aged patient with coronary disease - a rare association. Rev. Colomb. Cardiol. [online]. 2013, vol.20, n.4, pp.255-257. ISSN 0120-5633.

We describe a rare association between cardiac tumor and coronary disease. A 42 years old male was admitted with complaints of dyspnea. The physical examination was unremarkable. The electrocardiogram showed sinus rhythm, with right bundle block and ventricular anterior wall repolarization abnormality. The echocardiogram showed a structure with increased echogenicity inside the left atrium, compatible with cardiac tumor. A surgery was then indicated to remove the tumor. The patient became stable and was discharged in the fourth post-operative day with no symptom and no complication.

Keywords : tumors; myxoma; coronary disease; surgery.
