Abstract

The increasing number of metastatic heart tumors is observed due to increasing frequency of cancer cases. Malignant melanoma, germ cell carcinomas, hematologic and lymphatic neoplasms, breast and lungs carcinomas and carcinoma of esophagus are the most often origins of metastatic tumors to the heart.
In this case, patient was addmited to the Cardiology Department with suspicion of myocarditis. The only anomaly found during admission was tumor in right ventricle of the heart. After we decided of surgical treatment of the tumor, patient state worsened and she died. Autopsy confirmed our diagnose of metastatic origin of the tumor.
