Abstract
Primary cardiac tumors are very rare and generally benign. The most common type, cardiac rhabdomyoma, comprises 45% to 75% of primary cardiac tumors. Cardiac rhabdomyoma is a rare benign tumor that commonly presents with tuberous sclerosis. We present a case of an infant with multifocal cardiac rhabdomyomas with an atrial septal defect and tricuspid insufficiency and no sign of tuberous sclerosis. She was successfully treated with an operation, the treatment plan included mass resection, tricuspid annuloplasty, and closure of the patent foramen ovale. The right atrial lesion was resected entirely, while the lobulated lesion in the right ventricle was resected as two pieces. There was no evidence of recurrence 1 year after the surgery.
