BEDMAR M, Daniel et al. Primary left atrial hemangiopericytoma: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2011, vol.139, n.6, pp.770-773. ISSN 0034-9887.

We report a 41-year-old male presenting with progressive dyspnea lasting one month. A CAT scan disclosed a left atrial mass, that was surgically excised. The pathological study of the surgical piece showed a primary hemangiopericytoma. One month later, the patient consulted for cervical pain and a positron emission tomography showed multiple metastases. The patient died two months later.

Keywords : Heart neoplasms; Hemangioma; Hemangiopericytoma.
