A 29-­year-old ­female was ­found to ­have a ­left ven­tric­u­lar ­mass ­while in the 14th ­week of ges­ta­tion. Seven ­years ear­li­er she had under­gone remov­al of a ­left ven­tric­u­lar myx­o­ma. At re-op­er­a­tion, ­after elec­tive inter­rup­tion of preg­nan­cy, a recur­rent ­left ven­tric­u­lar myx­o­ma was suc­cess­ful­ly ­excised. According to a ­review of the lit­er­a­ture recur­rence of an iso­lat­ed, local­ized ­left ven­tric­u­lar myx­o­ma has not ­been pre­vi­ous­ly report­ed.
