Abstract

Cardiac tumors are rare in occurrence. Among them, primary cardiac tumors that too hemangiomas are further rare. They usually are asymptomatic and are detected incidentally. Preoperative diagnosis may not correlate with histopathologic diagnosis. We report such a rare case of left ventricular hemangioma presented to us with vague chest discomfort, which preoperatively was suspected to be rhabdomyoma or fibroma.
