We report a case of atrial fibrillation associated with cardiac accessory tissues in a 43-year-old patient. The clinical symptomatology was dominated by recurrent palpitations and right heart failure. Doppler echocardiography revealed a couple of cardiac accessory tissues causing dilatation of right cardiac chambers.
