Primary Cardiac Rhabdomyosarcoma in a child -- A case report
AbstractPrimary cardiac tumors are rare in children, usually consist of benign
tumors like rhabdomyomas and fibromas that may spontaneously regress.
Primary malignant tumors are extremely rare even in adults and very few
paediatric cases were reported in literature. Rhabdomyosarcoma is a rare
primary malignant tumor in children and most of the reported cases occur
in right ventricle, left atrium and right atrium. We report a 15 month
old child with primary rhabdomyosarcoma of left ventricle presenting in
cardiac tamponade and circulatory failure.
