Özet

We present a 24 year old woman with cardiac rhabdomyoma. Cardiac rhabdomyoma is the most common benign cardiac tumor in infants, but in adults, cardiac rhabdomyoma is very rare. These tumors are often spontaneously reversible because they are associated to the right or left ventricular outflow tract obstruction, tachyarrhythmias and heart failure where surgery is necessary.
