Abstract

A 29-yr-old patient is described, who presented with rapid general deterioration and right heart failure. Two-dimensional echocardiography revealed massive intracardiac tumor involving the right atrium, the right ventricle and the left atrium. At histology the diagnosis of Burkitt's lymphoma was made. This report presents what we believe to be the first case of a patient with primary cardiac manifestations and multiple intracardiac masses in this disease.
