[Cardiac metastasis in primary cancer of the liver].

[Article in Bulgarian]


A rare case of a 77-year-old man with primary liver cancer and an isolated metastasis in the right atrial endocardium is presented. The metastasis was 30/40 mm large and occupied a considerable part of the atrial cavity. Clinically the disease was manifested by progressing chronic right ventricular failure, ending with a total heart failure. The diagnosis was made at the post mortem examination. The rarity of the case is pointed out. The possibility of a correct diagnosis while the patient was still alive is discussed.
