Primary Cardiac tumors are uncommon during infancy and childhood. Myxomas originating in the right ventricles are even less common in paediatric patient. Our patient baby Rani, 3 months of age presented with shortness of breath and chest indrawing. Antenatal history and delivery was uneventful. The baby was under weight and also malnourished but there was no cyanosis and clubbing. Her respiratory rate was 25/minute. On precordium examination, first heart sound (S1) was normal but pulmonary component of second heart sound (P2) was soft. There was an ejection systolic murmur (Grade-3/6) in the left upper para-sternal area. Chest X-ray revealed cardiomegaly. Echocardiogram revealed a large mass (11x10mm) in the right ventricle, dynamically obstructing the right ventricular out-flow tract and compressing the left ventricle. There was a Tricuspid regurgitation (Grade-2) and moderate pulmonary hypertension (PASP-50 mmHg).
