The anti­phos­pho­lip­id syn­drome (APS) has ­been asso­ciat­ed ­with mul­ti­ple car­diac abnor­mal­ities. The ­present ­report ­describes a ­case of ­right ven­tri­cle throm­bus in a 51-­year-old wom­an ­with a his­to­ry of auto­im­mune haem­o­lyt­ic ane­mia and anti­phos­pho­lip­id anti­bod­ies. Transthoracic ech­o­car­di­og­ra­phy dem­on­strat­ed the pres­ence of a ­right ven­tri­cle ­mass, mim­ick­ing a myx­o­ma. She under­went ­open ­heart remov­al of the ­mass and was stard­ed on indef­i­nite­ly anti­co­ag­u­lant ther­a­py. At 2 ­years fol­low-up she was ­free of symp­toms.
