Abstract

This report describes a mitral valvular cyst mimicking a solid mass in an 80-year-old patient. The diagnosis was based on histopathological evaluation of the resected material. This report emphasizes the possibility of misdiagnosis by echocardiographic and other imaging modalities of a mitral valvular mass in a patient without any clinical signs and symptoms.
