Concomitant cardiac and hepatic hemangiomas

Echocardiography. 2020 Mar;37(3):462-464. doi: 10.1111/echo.14614. Epub 2020 Feb 12.


Primary tumors of the heart are rare with a reported incidence of about 0.002% to 0.3% at autopsy. A cardiac hemangioma is a form of benign primary cardiac tumor that often presents with atypical clinical symptoms. Hemangiomas are generally isolated lesions. Here, we report a patient with previous hepatic hemangioma who later was found to have a large coexistent cardiac hemangioma presenting with cardiac compressive symptoms.
