Abstract

This report describes an isolated case of cardiac metastasis of a myxoid liposarcoma that was successfully resected by surgery after clinical and ultrasound diagnosis. Although cardiac metastases are rarely diagnosed during patients' lifetimes, a search should be made for such lesions whenever cardiac disorders appear suddenly in cancer patients. Echocardiography appears to be one of the best investigative techniques for such purposes. Despite generally poor therapeutic results, surgical resection occasionally permits long periods of survival.
