RIOS-GONZALEZ, Carlos Miguel  y  VERON MELLID, Fabiana Griselda. Cardiac sarcoma with encephalon metastasis and myiasis. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2019, vol.17, n.3, pp.76-78. ISSN 1812-9528.

Cardiac sarcomas are a very rare entity that are often asymptomatic until they are advanced, and even so produce nonspecific symptoms and mimic other pathologies. The somber prognosis results from extensive local invasion and / or distant metastasis in the presentation. We present a 24-year female patient from the rural area of Paraguay, who was diagnosed with primary cardiac sarcoma. One year after the surgical intervention, the patient returns to the service, where metastasis to the brain is detected, concomitantly myiasis is seen, and therefore, she is admitted to the intensive care unit for follow-up.The total lack of follow-up to this patient can be appreciated, which is why she has entered the service in this state, so it is essential to implement follow-up programs for these patients to avoid preventable complications.
