PMID:  22180606     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A patient presented with shortness of breath, lethargy and weight loss. A computerized tomography and echocardiogram showed a mass in the right ventricle nearly obstructing the pulmonary valve during systole and prolapsing into the main pulmonary artery. The mass was completely excised. Histology was that of a typical myxoma.
