PMID:  7733728     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Myxomas are one of the most common cardiac tumors but usually are confined to the atria. Although described in all cardiac chambers and on all cardiac valves, only one postmortem case of an aortic valve myxoma has been published. We present the case of a young man with an aortic valve myxoma with peripheral embolization. The other pathologic conditions with which valvular myxomas can be confused are compared and discussed.
