Cardiac papillary fibroelastomas are rare benign tumors of the heart with potential for life-threatening complications. The incidence of multiple lesions is less than 10% of all reported cases. Preoperative transesophageal echocardiography is important for detecting all cardiac sites involving this tumor, because excision of all such tumors must be performed to prevent serious complications. Here, the first ever case is reported of multiple infected papillary fibroelastoma of the mitral valve, aortic valve and left ventricular outflow tract with massive mitral insufficiency in a patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
