Primary tumors of the heart are very rare. We report a case of a 28-year old female patient in whom a tumor of the left ventricle was first diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiography. Angiography, nuclear magnetic resonance imaging and fasting positron emission tomography, with 18-fluorodesoxyglucose suggested the diagnosis of a well vascularized tumor. The tumor was subtotally excised during heart surgery iunder total cardiopulmonary bypass and histological examination identified a predominantly vascular hamartoma.
