Cardiac myxomas are benign tumors of the heart. Coronary arteriography is not only helpful to exclude any coronary artery disease but also to show a possible tumor vascularization. In this case report, we describe case of a 47 year-old female patient with left atrial myxoma which has a tumor nutrient artery originating from the right coronary artery. Determination of this nutrient artery will change the surgical strategy.
