We ­report a case of intra­ve­nous leiom­yo­mat­o­sis (IVL) in a 44-year-old woman, pre­sent­ing with car­di­oth­o­rac­ic clin­i­cal man­i­fes­ta­tions. Such a rare neo­plas­tic con­di­tion most often aris­es from the ute­rine veins. At times it may reach the right cav­ities of the heart and it must be con­sid­ered in the dif­fe­ren­tial diag­no­sis with a car­diac myx­o­ma or a throm­bus.
