Intracardiac masses in the young occur in some conditions that are prevalent in Africa. Although usually non-malignant, they may present with refractory heart failure and other complications that can be fatal. In the majority of cases, the aetiologic differentiation can be achieved by careful history, physical examination, basic laboratory tests, and transthoracic echocardiography. We report three cases in young Africans and discuss the aetiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, management, and outcome of selected conditions in resource-limited settings.
