PMID:  3864856     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Two patients presenting with acute pulmonary edema were found to have a left atrial cardiac osteogenic sarcoma (primary and secondary). The two-dimensional echocardiographic appearance in both cases mimicked that of atrial myxoma. However, two echocardiographic features (that is, tumor extension into pulmonary veins and origin from nonseptal atrial walls) suggested the presence of a nonmyxomatous cardiac tumor.
