Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Calcified amorphous tumour is a rare, non-neoplastic, endocardially based, intracavitary cardiac mass. This report describes a 59-year old man in whom a mobile mass was found incidentally in the heart by routine echocardiography after he had been on haemodialysis for 3 years. Transoesophageal echocardiography revealed a high-echoic swinging tumour that originated from the annulus of the anterior commissure of the mitral valve. Surgical resection was performed to prevent embolization, and his clinical course was excellent.
