Abstract

Glandular cardiac myxoma is rare, representing only 5% of cardiac myxomas. A 51-year-old female developed embolic events caused by left atrial myxoma. She underwent myxoma resection and had an uneventful postoperative course. Histology of the resected myxoma revealed a glandular cardiac myxoma. In this article, the peculiar case was presented and the origin of cardiac myxoma was discussed.
