Abstract

Carcinoid tumors have been described in almost every organ and may affect virtually every body system. Cardiac involvement manifesting as right-sided valvular disease is characteristic of the carcinoid heart disease. Myocardial metastasis is an unusual manifestation of carcinoid heart disease and it was manifested as a mass lesion in the previous reports. We observed a myocardial metastasis of carcinoid tumor manifesting as diffusely infiltrative pattern.
