Infected Cardiac Myxoma

Academic Article


  • Infected cardiac myxomas are extremely rare with only forty cases described in the literature. We report a case of an infected cardiac myxoma that presented in a manner similar to bacterial endocarditis. Our case is the first to be diagnosed using previously defined criteria, and is unusual in that transesophageal echocardiography was required to make the diagnosis.
