Abstract

Hemangiomas are rare benign tumours of the heart, generally asymptomatic and usually diagnosed in male young or full-grown adults. We report here a case of a symptomatic right atrial hemangioma in a 75-year-old woman with a clinical history of hypertension. The tumour was diagnosed after an episode of acute bronchopneumonia precipiting the patient's cardiac failure initially referred to the hypertensive condition. © 2002 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
