Abstract: Primary cardiac tumors are very rare and myxomas constitute most of them. Hemangiomas are even rarer. As most of cardiac hemangiomas are asymptomatic, they are generally incidentally detected in postmortem examination or imaging studies. Echocardiography is the preferred imaging modality for the clinical diagnosis in symptomatic patients, while the definitive diagnosis is based on histopathological examination. Treatment is surgical excision of the tumor. As there is a risk of recurrence for incompletely resected tumors, particularly, postoperative follow-up is necessary. In this article, we report a rare cardiac cavernous hemangioma case with remarkable features including symptomatic profile of the patient, localization of the tumor in the right ventricular outflow tract and its macroscopic appearance mimicking myxoma. The patient is followed uneventfully.
