Abstract: Cardiac lymphoma (CL) is a rare and life-threatening clinical condition. Most cases are diagnosed late period. Although the definitive diagnosis is made by biopsy, a biopsy could not be performed in most cardiac masses due to the high mortality rate and therefore the exact incidence is not known. In this case report, we present a case of giant CL filling both the pericardial area and right heart cavities and treated with surgical resection in a previously healthy male patient who presented with symptoms of heart failure.
