Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 24-year-old woman with a history of syncope and recurrent hemopericardium was urgently hospitalized with signs of severe right-sided heart failure. Two-dimensional echocardiography demonstrated a largedechogenic mass that compressed the right ventricle. The patient was referred for emergency surgery. A large angiosarcoma originating in the right atrium was excised, and the patient was treated with chemotherapy. The role of echocardiography in the detection of cardiac tumors is discussed.
