Abstract

Cardiac myxoma is the most common primary tumor of the heart. A high suspicion of this potentially lethal disease is warranted because it may mimick a large variety of diseases. Two patients with different symptoms and signs are presented, in whom resection of the tumor was successful. Complete resection of the tumor is the only effective method of treatment.
