Abstract

Intracardiac ectopic thyroid is a rare lesion. We present a case of successful excision of thyroid tissue obstructing the right ventricular outflow tract and provide a literature review. In all cases reported to date, the ectopic tissue arose from the ventricular septum and extended to the outflow tract.
