Papillary fibroelastomas are rare, primary cardiac tumors most often diagnosed incidentally at autopsy. These tumors have been associated with embolism, neurologic injury, coronary ischemia and sudden death. We report a case of clinical detection of an asymptomatic aortic valve papillary fibroelastoma by transesophageal echocardiography. The mass was an incidental finding during routine coronary artery bypass surgery. This finding dictated a change in the operative approach to include resection of the aortic valve mass in addition to coronary revascularization.
