Abstract:

Heart and pericardium metastases are very rare, but the incidence is greater than primary cardiac tumors. We present an uncommon case of a 73-year-old woman with diagnosis of breast cancer with lung metastasis came to our attention for an inferior STEMI. After treating the coronary disease, we diagnosed cardiac metastasis with contrast echocardiogram and MRI. Although rare, cardiac metastasis can occur and should always be considered in patients with a previous diagnosis of cancer.
