Abstract

Atrial myxoma as a rare benign heart tumor can cause acute coronary syndrome via coronary embolization. In this report, we present a 54-year-old woman who presented with acute inferior myocardial infarction. In further evaluation a 2.5 x 3 x 4 cm mass was found in the left atrium. The mass was excised surgically and its pathology was compatible with myxoma. After resection, the patient was discharged with a favorable outcome.
