A fetal echocardiogram revealed a large right ventricular mass. After birth, the infant had pulmonary blood flow obstruction with cyanosis. The size and characteristics of the tumor prevented resection. The patient underwent placement of a systemic-to-pulmonary shunt as another alternative. This palliation allowed discharge from the hospital and provided good relief for the cyanosis until the tumor became resectable. The pathologic examination revealed a cardiac fibroma.
