Bi-auricular myxoma associated with atrioventricular dissociation in an 18-year-old boy: a case report
Cardiology in the Young, 05/31/2012Tchoumi JCT et al.
The reported incidence of cardiac tumours in autopsy series is 0.001–0.28%. Right atrial myxomas are uncommon, but when present they often originate from the interatrial septum, and conduction disturbances are rarely noted as an accompanying feature in this condition. Authors report the case of an 18–year–old boy with a myxoma in both left and right atrium associated with atrioventricular dissociation.
