Cardiac fibromas are rare benign tumors predominantly diagnosed in children and teenagers. We report a 57-year-old male patient with class II dyspnea and angina. During electrocardiographic assessment, recurrent ventricular tachycardia was present and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a giant (12.5 × 5 × 4 cm) intramural left ventricular tumor compatible with cardiac fibroma. After surgical biopsy and histological confirmation, open-heart surgical resection was successfully performed. After nine months of follow up, the patient remains asymptomatic without evidence of ventricular tachycardia.
