Abstract

Cardiac tumors in adults are exceedingly rare and usually benign. We describe a 29-year-old man with a previous diagnosis of interventricular septal hypertrophy who presented with increasing severity of dyspnea and fatigue. Work-up revealed a 4.9 × 3.7 cm mass at the base of the interventricular septum. Biopsy revealed a benign cardiac hamartoma atypically located in the right ventricle, and the mass was resected via right ventriculotomy.
