JIMENEZ AGUILAR, Mijail; LEON VARON, Cinthia Fabiola; MARTINEZ LEON, Alejandro F.  e  ZURITA, Víctor. Right atrium myxoma in chilhood . Gac Med Bol [online]. 2020, vol.43, n.1, pp. 103-106. ISSN 1012-2966.

Primary cardiac tumors are rare and represent only 5% of all cardiac tumors. 75% of these tumors are benign, and myxoma is the most common benign tumor in adults (50%). Most cardiac myxomas are located in the left atrium, only 18-20% are located in the right atrium, and the appearance of a bilobed tumor is even more infrequent, the signs and symptoms with which they occur are nonspecific and they vary according to their behavior. We present a case with these characteristics in a 9-year-old school patient who was admitted to Manuel Ascencio Villarroel Children’s Hospital.

Palavras-chave : myxoma; cardiac tumor; right atrium.
