AMERICO, Carlos et al. Mitral valve myxoma. The echocardiogram as a tissue characterization tool. A case report. Rev.Urug.Cardiol. [online]. 2018, vol.33, n.3, pp.217-223. ISSN 0797-0048.

We share the case of a 32-year-old patient who presented with inferior infarction and no coronary lesions at coronariography, in whom the presence of a tumor in the mitral valve was diagnosed by echocardiography. Through tissular characterization techniques, we arrived at a presumptive myxoma diagnosis, which was confirmed by pathological anatomy.

Keywords : Myxoma; Mitral valve; Acute coronary syndrome; Heart neoplasms.
