Abstract

Cardiac papillary fibroelastoma (CPF) is a benign cardiac tumor that usually affects cardiac valves. It is usually discovered incidentally on routine echocardiography. However, left ventricular CPF is rare. This report describes the case of a 73-year-old female, referred to a cardiology department for evaluation of a mass of the left ventricle. The mass was found routine echocardiography. The transthoracic echocardiography revealed a 2.2x1.3 cm highly oscillating mass, attached by stalk on the inferior wall of the left ventricle. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a non-enhanced, 1.8x1.0 cm mass on the inferior wall of the left ventricle. The patient underwent surgical resection of the mass, histopathologic examination of the mass confirmed the diagnosis of a CPF.
