Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A patient with superior caval vein compression due to malignant thymoma with infrequent intracavitary cardiac growth is presented. Diagnostic accuracy of cardiac involvement was higher using transesophageal echocardiography compared to transthoracic echocardiography. The majority of the rare intracavitary cardiac thymomas seem to be confined to the right side of the heart.
