Multiple cerebral aneurysms and cardiac myxoma

Arch Neurol. 1975 Apr;32(4):269-70. doi: 10.1001/archneur.1975.00490460085013.

Abstract

Neurological signs are a frequent manifestation of left atrial myxoma, but the association of cardiac myxoma with multiple cerebral aneurysms is rare. A case of left atrial myxoma was detected in the course of a long-lasting psychiatric and neurological illness. Four-vessel study showed the presence of multiple saccular and fusiform aneurysms, regularly and almost symmetrically distributed. The intracardiac mass was removed, and the patient improved.
