Left atrial myxoma with pleural effusion

, : Left atrial myxoma with pleural effusion. Journal of Clinical Medicine Research 1(5): 297-299

Cardiac myxomas are histologically benign tumors but they may be lethal because of their strategic position. They have variable presentations and excellent prognosis after surgical excision. Left atrial myxomas may mimic mitral stenosis and is very rarely associated with pleural effusion. We presented a case of left atrial myxoma blocking mitral orifice and causing recurrent pulmonary edema and pleural effusions in this report. Left Atrial; Myxoma; Pleural effusion.
