Abstract

Background: Cardiac hemangiomas are benign neoplasms which have been reported to appear as well-circumscribed, homogenous, enhancing masses at imaging. Methods and results: We report a 49-year-old woman with a cardiac hemangioma detected by echocardiography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. The multiple imaging modalities showed features which have been reported in cardiac hemangiomas. The tumor was surgically excised and the diagnosis of cardiac hemangioma was made. Conclusions: Cardiac hemangiomas are rare tumors with a variety of imaging features which may suggest the diagnosis.
