Primary Cardiac Tumors

  • Ji-Gang Wang
Chapter

Abstract

Primary cardiac tumors are rare. The most frequent location is left atrium. Only a small minority of primary tumors occur frequently in the right heart (hemangioma, angiosarcoma, leiomyomatosis, and lymphoma). In this chapter, we discussed several types of primary cardiac tumors in the 2015’ edition of WHO classifications of cardiac tumors, including myxoma, rhabdomyoma, hemangioma, fibroma, papillary fibroelastoma, lipoma, schwannoma, paraganglioma, inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor, angiosarcoma, undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma, myxofibrosarcoma, leiomyosarcoma, synovial sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, osteosarcoma, and lymphoma.

Keywords
