Abstract

Malignant local or metastatic myxomatous tumors of the heart are rare and sometimes present with an unpredictable outcome. The present report demonstrates an unusual case of left atrial myxoma with a rather strange distribution of metastases that had long-term remission after combined surgical resection, chemotherapy, and irradiation of cerebral and pulmonary metastases.
