An asymptomatic cardiac neurilemoma was found in a 33-year-old woman. The tumor was on the anterior surface of the right atrium extending to the right upper pulmonary vein across the interatrial groove. The tumor was resected completely and right atrium, interatrial septum, left atrium and right superior pulmonary vein were reconstructed with cardiopulmonary bypass. The patient recovered uneventfully and had no recurrence 1 year after the operation. We reviewed ten reported cases of cardiac neurilemoma, including our patient.
