Abnormalities of skin pigmentation are known to be associated sometimes with cardiovascular diseases. Such cases have been reported first in 1954 (14), then in 1962 (16) and 1966 (11), leading to the individualization of the leopard syndrome. In 1973 Rees et al. (21) described a lentiginosis, cardiac myxoma association, and this in turn resulted, in 1985, in a new syndrome (4) supported by several similar findings. We report here a new case with this association.
