Abstract

Cardiac tumors are rare in children, but they are being diagnosed with increasing frequency and great accuracy with wide array of imaging modalities. Cardiac rhabdomyoma and myxoma are the most common tumors in children and adults, respectively. Cardiac hemangiomas comprise about 2.8% of all primary cardiac tumors and fewer than 100 cases have been reported in the literature. We report a successful resection of cardiac hemangioma in the right ventricular outflow tract in an adolescent, presented with moderate to severe obstruction.
