Abstract

Considerable literature concerning cardiac tumors in infancy and childhood has accumulated summarizing the prevalence, histologic types, clinical presentation and outcome, and changing imaging algorithms [1, 7, 10, 14, 20, 24, 33, 37, 43, 48, 57, 58, 60-62, 67, 69, 70, 90, 105, 106, 110, 124, 139, 140, 142, 143, 149]. In this review, we focus on selected aspects of cardiac tumors in the neonate, infant, and child, with an emphasis on imaging modalities [6, 13, 15, 18, 21-23, 60, 71, 77, 80, 92, 98, 99, 103, 107, 112, 114, 119, 146]. Various types of primary cardiac tumors in childhood are discussed in this article.
