Primary cardiac liposarcomas are very rare. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and Transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE) can be valuable assets. We report a case of a primary left ventricular, low grade liposarcoma, involving the lateral wall of the left ventricle, papillary muscles and posterior mitral valve leaflet, chords and annulus. Complete resection was impossible. Local excision and mitral valve repair provided local control with preservation of the valve and its function.
