Abstract

We presented a 15 years old female patient was admitted with complaints of headache, dyspnea and palpitation and was diagnosed in right spastic hemiparesia, left amorozis, 2/6 sistolic murmur in the mitral focuse in physical examination and a mobile mass in 27x48 mm sized orginating from interatrial septum and which prolapses to left ventricle in diastole by echocardiography. It has been thought that the neurological findings result in embolic complication of the atrial mass lesion. The mass lesion was excised radically with its endocardial origin by using biatrial incision with extracorporeal circulation. It was revealed mxoma histopathologically.
