J Electrocardiol. 2017 Sep-Oct;50(5):667-670. doi: 10.1016/j.jelectrocard.2017.04.014. Epub 2017 May 3.


Cardiac hemangioma is a rare primary cardiac tumor. We reported the case of patient with left ventricular hemangioma who was referred to our hospital complaining of palpitation for one week. 24 h Holter revealed high episode of ventricular arrhythmia. Echocardiography showed a mass at left ventricle, which was also confirmed by MRI. The mass was successfully resected and postoperative pathology confirmed cardiac capillary hemangioma. The patient recovered well with no cardiac arrhythmia after surgery over 12 months of follow-up.
