Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Primary intimal sarcomas of the left atrium are extremely rare and highly aggressive tumours. To our knowledge, only 4 cases have been reported to date. We report on a 42-year-old man who presented with signs of congestive heart failure and was found to have an enormous left atrial bilobed tumour with obstruction of the mitral valve. The patient underwent a surgical excision of the sarcoma. The tumour recurred 8.5 months later and the patient required right pneumonectomy.
