PMID:  6693658     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The clinical, echocardiographic, cineangiocardiographic and autopsy findings in a newborn infant with right ventricular fibroma are reported. The tumor caused severe right ventricular outflow obstruction simulating cyanotic heart disease. Echocardiography allowed a definitive diagnosis of the tumor mass at 10 hours of age. The clinical implications of the case are discussed.
