Abstract

Abstract 1. 1. A case of intracardiac tumor arising from the interauricular septum is reported and illustrated by gross and microscopic photographs. 2. 2. We have found no record of this condition ever having been diagnosed before necropsy. 3. 3. A tumor of this type may produce a ball-valve action in every way similar to the action of a ball thrombus.
