Abstract

A 49-year-old female presented with a 1-month history of cough and low-grade fever. Echocardiography showed a large mass in the right ventricle and percutaneous right ventricular endomyocardial biopsy provided the histologic diagnosis. Despite radiotherapy and chemotherapy, the patient died. At autopsy, the metastatic deposit in the heart was larger than the primary cervical carcinoma.
