BECKER R, Pedro; FRANGINI S, Patricia  y  ARNAIZ G, Pilar. Recurrent left atrial myxoma. Report of a case in a 2 year-old boy. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2006, vol.134, n.5, pp.635-640. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872006000500013.

Primary cardiac tumors are uncommon in pediatric patients. We report a two year-old boy, who presented a recurrent left atrial myxoma. He was referred for cardiologic evaluation because of cardiomegaly on a chest X-ray. An echocardiography showed a big left atrial tumor attached to the atrial septum. The tumor was uneventfully removed and the pathological examination confirmed a myxoma. He remained asymptomatic and during a follow up echocardiography two years later, a recurrent tumor was noted. He was successfully operated again, remaining free of a new recurrence after 3 years of follow up

Palabras clave : Echocardiography; Heart neoplasms; Myxoma.
