Abstract

Abstract A 30-mo-old boy had a successful excision of an intramyocardial fibroma. Fibromas constitute about one quarter of the reported primary cardiac tumors in children and offer the best chance of excision. Rhabdomyomas account for over half of childhood cardiac tumors but usually are not diagnosed until they are terminal and nonresectable. Myxomas, which account for 50% of adult tumors, are almost unknown in children.
