A 55 year-old man had a myxoma that originated in the left atrium and grew through a secundum atrial septal defect into the right atrium. The tumor, which was attached by a pedicle to the lateral wall of the left atrium near the right pulmonary vein, was resected under cardiopulmonary bypass. Transesophageal echocardiography was important in the successful outcome of surgical treatment.
