Primary car­diac neu­ri­lem­o­ma, a ­benign ­tumor, is extreme­ly uncom­mon. To ­our knowl­edge ­only ­eight cas­es ­have ­been report­ed in ­the lit­er­a­ture. We ­report a ­case of a 72-­year-­old ­man ­who pre­sent­ed ­with com­plaints of pro­gres­sive short­ness of ­breath ­and ­chest ­pain, sev­en ­years ­after a ­right neph­rec­to­my ­for ­renal aden­o­car­cin­o­ma. An ­intra-­right atri­al ­tumor ­was sur­gi­cal­ly ­removed; ­the ­lesion ­was ­found to be a neu­ri­lem­o­ma of ­the ­right atri­um. This ­case ­report ­describes ­the sur­gi­cal remov­al ­and rar­ity of neu­ri­lem­o­mas, ­their pre­dis­po­si­tion to be ­right-sid­ed in ­the ­heart ­and ­their coin­ci­den­tal asso­ci­a­tion ­with oth­er ­types of can­cer.
