Abstract:

A 58-year-old woman presented at the Emergency Department because of a 1-week severe headache unresponsive to therapy. Woman had no history of heart problems. Brain CT and CT angiography revealed an aneurism of the anterior communicating artery that was treated with embolization. Brain MRI revealed multiple acute ischemic areas, so that a Transthoracic Echocardiography (TTE) was performed. TTE revealed the presence of a huge cardiac mass (about 7 by 5 cm) in the left atrium, with signs of mitral flow obstruction. The patient underwent surgical removal of the left atrial mass. A histological examination made the diagnosis of atrial myxoma.
