Abstract

Myxoma is the most frequently encountered primary tumour of the heart, comprising more than 50% of all benign cardiac tumours. The case presented here was diagnosed as having dextrocardia with situs inversus and concomitant left ventricular outflow tract myxoma which has been very rarely encountered, particularly consistent with the scarcity of reported cases.
