Abstract

A 38-year-old woman presented with chest pain. Two-dimensional echocardiography revealed a mobile mass in the left ventricle, attached to the posterior papillary muscle of the mitral valve without valvular involvement. The tumor was resected. Histopathology confirmed the tumor as papillary fibroelastoma. Our case highlights an atypical presentation of papillary fibroelastoma.
