We report multidetector row CT (MDCT) findings of two left atrial myxomas causing mitral valve obstruction and dyspnea of patients. Cardiac MDCT showed well-defined left atrial masses attached to the interatrial septum and shifting of tumors into the left ventricle causing mitral valve obstruction during diastole in a 37-year-old male and in a 69-year-old female. Also, we observed intratumoral hemorrhage in the second case. Myxomas were resected and the patients were discharged without dyspnea.
