Abstract: A 62-year-old female patient with known mitral-valve prolapse for the previous five years presented with progressive dyspnea and intermittent palpitations. This clinical presentation was investigated by two-dimensional echocardiography which revealed moderate mitral regurgitation due to a pedunculated mass oscillating between the left atrium and the left ventricle. Successful operative treatment consisted of en-bloc resection of the tumor from the anterior mitral valve leaflet and its primary cords and subsequ… Show more

“…Of the remaining cases, seven lymphangiomas grew within the pericardium, in another six cases the growth was mainly localized to the atrium or ventricle, and in the remaining four cases the cyst-like tumors grew into the heart cavity. In one of these cases the tumor grew into the mitral valve [20]. Current literature cases have also described the symptoms of lymphangiomas.…”

“…In addition, the literature has discussed 17 cases of lymphangiomas localized in the heart [11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26][27]. From these cases, 2 cases were diagnosed as a mixed hemolymphangioma.…”

“…Although lymphangioma can occur in any region subserved by the lymphatic system (e.g., the head, neck, axilla, retroperitoneum, spleen, colon, intra-abdominal mesentery, esophagus, mediastinum and chest wall), cardiac manifestations of this disease entity are rare (1-3). In addition, cardiac and pelvic involvement, which we refer to as lymphangiomatosis, has not been previously described.…”

“…In addition, cardiac and pelvic involvement, which we refer to as lymphangiomatosis, has not been previously described. The majority of reported cases of cardiac lymphangioma have occurred in children younger than 10 years (1-5), and symptoms appear to depend on sites and the extent of involvement, ranging from congestive heart failure, syncope, arrhythmia and palpitations to cardiac tamponade (5). …”
