We describe two cases of hemangioma affecting the tricuspid valve (TV). One patient was a 47-year-old male who presented with recurrent episodes of dyspnea on exertion for 5 years. Echocardiography revealed an echo dense 1 x 1 cm mass attached to the chordae tendineae of the TV. Surgical excision was done and histopathology of the lesion showed features of hemangioma. The other case was a 1-day-old neonate with complex congenital abnormalities in whom multiple small hemangiomas affecting the TV were incidentally detected at autopsy.
