Papillary fibroelastomas are the most common cardiac valve tumors, although they represent less than 10% of all cardiac tumors. These benign tumors are increasingly incidentally discovered as the result of the widespread use of echocardiography. After a definitive diagnosis has been made, surgical resection is strongly advocated due to the risk of cardioembolic complications. We present a very rare finding of an aortic wall papillary fibroelastoma with a resultant partial occlusion of the right coronary ostium.
