Abstract

Primary cardiac tumours are an extremely rare entity, which may be completely asymptomatic or present with a wide range of clinical symptoms and signs such as congestive heart failure, murmurs, stroke or arrhythmias. We discuss the case of a 53 year old with synchronous but unrelated left atrial myxoma and colorectal adenocarcinoma. To our knowledge, this is the first report in the literature of a patient with an atrial myxoma incidentally discovered as part of staging following a diagnosis of colorectal cancer.
