Primary cardiac tumors are rare, with benign lesions outnumbering malignant ones by a margin of over four to one. Amongst the benign cardiac neoplasms, papillary fibroelastomas are reported second only to myxomas. Papillary fibroelastomas commonly rise from heart valves and their size ranges from a few millimeters to well over 2.0 cm in diameter. While myxomas commonly arise from the interatrial septum, we present the rare example of a large papillary fibroelastoma arising from the left side of the interatrial septum.
