Abstract
Perinatal cardiac tumors are rare and the vast majority are histologically benign. Clinical manifestations depend on their size and location. Most of them are clinically unimportant but an arrhythmia or a cardiac failure may present as a feature of obstruction of the outflow tract. Cardiac rhabdomyoma is the most common type of the cardiac tumor and associated with the tuberous sclerosis, and may be the only sign of the tuberous sclerosis, especially, in fetus. We report a case of a cardiac tumor detected during routine prenatal ultrasonographic evaluation, which demonstrated features of rhabdomyoma. After birth, the newborn was diagnosed as tuberous sclerosis with brain MRI scanning.
Key Words: Cardiac rhabdomyoma, Tuberous sclerosis, Ultrasonography
