Abstract

Cardiac lymphangioma is a rare primary benign tumor of the heart. We report a 3-year-old with cystic lymphangioma encasing the right coronary artery. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging confirmed a intra-pericardial heterogeneous mass measuring 2.6 × 2.4 × 3.9 cm and situated right anterolateral to the ascending aorta and extending into the right atrioventricular groove. Furthermore, the right coronary artery traversed through the center of the mass. Surgical resection, on cardiopulmonary bypass, consisted of excision by skeletonizing the right coronary artery along the length of the mass. The pathology report was consistent with a lymphatic malformation. The postoperative course was uneventful without recurrence at follow-up.
