Recurrence of cardiac myxoma in the right atrium with Carney complex following resection of myxomas in both ventricles
We describe a case of Carney complex (CNC), a rare hereditary condition, that resulted in the development of cardiac myxomas. We would like to emphasize that we detected the first myxomas in both ventricles, followed by the second myxoma in the right atrium, although cardiac myxomas often originate in the left atrium. We highlight the heightened risk of recurrence and emphasize the importance of performing regular ultrasonic cardiac echography to preclude such outcomes.
