ENCISO ZACARIA, Virginia et al. Rabdomiosarcoma cardiaco: a case report from the Clinical Oncology Service of the Instituto de Previsión Social (IPS). Rev. salud publica Parag. [online]. 2022, vol.12, n.1, pp.48-51. ISSN 2307-3349.

Findings of primary cardiac malignant neoplasia are very rare and sporadic, among these is rhabdomyosarcoma. It is a mesenchymal neoplasm, whose diagnosis is made through imaging studies and pathological confirmation. Due to its infrequency, there is no precise and protocolized treatment standard at a national and global level.

We present the case of a young male patient with symptoms of dyspnea, weight loss and precordial pain; a tumor is confirmed, probable myxoma by echocardiography and embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma is diagnosed with the histology obtained after tumor exeresis at the IPS Central Hospital.

Keywords : Cardiac malignant neoplasm; Embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma; Myxoma.
