1. Kitzing B: Cardiac lipoma in a patient with a history of malignant tumours: a case report. Cases J; 2008;1(1):41
NCI CPTAC Assay Portal. NCI CPTAC Assay Portal .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Cardiac lipoma in a patient with a history of malignant tumours: a case report.
  • Cardiac tumours are relatively rare.
  • Most of them do not cause clinical symptoms so that prior to the introduction of modern methods of investigation they were predominately incidental findings during autopsies or open heart surgery.We present the case of a 63-year-old German man with a past history of malignant melanoma and renal cell carcinoma who presented with a right atrial lipoma and a suspicious lesion in the right lower lobe of the lung.
  • Surgical excision of the cardiac lipoma was performed and a biopsy of the lung mass was done which diagnosed a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Thymolipomas are rare anterior mediastinal tumors composed of mature adipose tissue and benign thymic tissue and they may rarely simulate cardiomegaly on chest radiograph.
  • Chest radiograph showed enlarged cardiac silhouette.
  • Computed tomography of chest revealed a giant anterior mediastinal noncontrast enhancing mass partially wrapping around the heart.
  • We emphasize the importance of considering mediastinal tumors as a differential diagnosis in patients with progressive dyspnea without any obvious cause and chest radiograph showing enlarged cardiac silhouette.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Skin Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • In order to discriminate the myocardial lesion from myxoma and other benign conditions and malignant tumors, percutaneous transvenous biopsy was performed.
  • Microscopic examination demonstrated the cardiac mass to be lipomatous hypertrophy of the interatrial septum (LHIS), and the skin lesions, simple lipomas.
  • This may be the first published case of LHIS, which likely represents cardiac involvement of lipomatosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Symptomatic lipoma in the interventricular septum.
  • Cardiac lipomas, which are benign nonmyxomatous neoplasms of the heart, are rare and among those least often encountered.
  • Because they normally cause no symptoms, diagnosis is often purely accidental.
  • We report the case of a 24-year-old woman who presented with palpitations of recent onset and was found to have a lipoma attached to the left side of the interventricular septum (IVS).
  • Transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiograms were performed and showed a mass in the left side of the Ivs. During successful surgical excision of the mass, intraoperative histologic diagnosis showed the tumor was lipoma.
  • Our review of the English literature revealed that our case is only the seventh of removal of lipoma in the Ivs. The postoperative course was uneventful, and an echocardiogram taken 6 months after the operation showed no evidence of enlargement of the tumor tissue.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Eleven-year experience in diagnosis and surgical therapy of right atrial masses.
  • BACKGROUND: Tumors arising from the right atrium are quite rare, and require special care during differential diagnosis for their management.
  • The histopathological examination of the surgically removed specimen revealed a benign tumor in eight patients (73%), and a malignant process in three (23%).
  • In eight patients with a benign tumor, atrial myxoma was the leading cause in half of the cases.
  • Hydatid cyst (n = 2), lipoma (n = 1), and right atrial thrombus (n = 1) were detected in the remaining four patients.
  • One patient died of heart failure after surgery.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Tumors of the right atrium are rarely seen, and necessitate a unique attention during the process of diagnosis and surgical treatment.

  • The MSCT findings were diagnostic of a benign lipoma.
  • Thus, this mass was noninvasively diagnosed as cardiac lipoma.
  • Neither life-threatening arrhythmia on Holter monitoring nor myocardial ischemia on exercise scintigraphy was observed.Transthoracic echocardiography is usually the initial diagnostic test in patients with a suspected cardiac mass.
  • In conclusion, we demonstrated the value of cardiac MSCT to diagnose an interventricular lipoma.

  • [Title] [Heart tumors: magnetic resonance imaging and multislice spiral CT].
  • Transthoracic echocardiography is usually the initial diagnostic test in patients with a suspected cardiac mass.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and, since its introduction, multislice spiral computed tomography allow for detailed delineation of intra and pericardiac tumors, their extent, and their influence on cardiac function.
  • Primary benign and malignant cardiac tumors have several characteristic features in MR imaging.
  • Assessment of such features may narrow down the differential diagnosis or even allow for reliable diagnosis in selected cases.
  • This article provides an overview of examination protocols of MRI and CT for cases in which a cardiac mass is suspected and describes the appearance of primary and secondary cardiac masses as well as intracavitary thrombi.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Lipomatous hypertrophy of the interatrial septum is a rare benign cardiac disorder characterised by the accumulation of adipose tissue; data from several post mortem surveys report how the disorder represents 0.6% of all benign cardiac tumours.
  • The disorder may at times lead to a pumping deficit associated to congestive heart failure or determine an abnormal heart rhythm leading even to sudden death.
  • Lipomatous hypertrophy can at times lead to problems in differential diagnosis of the disorder from other tumours or heart diseases.

  • [Title] Characterization and management of cardiac tumors.
  • Cardiac tumors are infrequent clinical entities with an autopsy frequency ranging from 0.001% to 0.030%.
  • The occurrence of metastatic cardiac tumors has been reported a 100-fold more commonly than primary lesions.
  • Three quarters of primary cardiac tumors are benign; approximately half of these are cardiac myxomas, and the rest are lipomas, papillary fibroelastomas, and rhabdomyomas.
  • Among malignant primary cardiac tumors, the most reported are those histopathologically considered as undifferentiated, followed by angiosarcomas and leiomyosarcomas.
  • Traditionally, cardiac tumors have been identified as curious autopsy findings resulting in a literature paucity of large clinical series, therefore, providing knowledge mostly based on case report collection.
  • However, recent technological advances in noninvasive imaging modalities such as echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have resulted in a rapid acquisition of real-time heart images with high spatial and temporal resolution and an excellent tissue characterization of the tumor.
  • This consequent earlier, more frequent, and more complete assessment of cardiac tumors before significant symptoms develop has challenged cardiologists, cardiac anesthesiologists, and surgeons to create a tailored referral pattern and approach.

  • Lipomatous lesions of the heart involving the atria and interatrial septum are not well known.
  • Most such lesions do not become clinically significant; however, intractable arrhythmias, blood flow obstruction, and valvular disruption may result from extensive fatty infiltration of the atrial wall or from the mass effect of benign or malignant lipomatous tumors.
  • We describe the pathology of the most common fatty lesions and underscore some of the radiographic and surgical issues pertaining to the diagnosis and management of these masses.

  • Benign small intestinal tumors (e.g., leiomyoma, lipoma, hamartoma, or desmoid tumor) usually are asymptomatic but may present with complications.
  • Because the small intestine is relatively inaccessible to routine endoscopy, diagnosis of small intestinal neoplasms is often delayed for months after onset of symptoms.
  • During last years the increase of small bowel endoscopy and other diagnostic tools allow earlier non-operative diagnosis.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Myocardial fat at cardiac imaging: how can we differentiate pathologic from physiologic fatty infiltration?
  • Myocardial fat is often seen at cardiac computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of healthy adults and patients with myocardial diseases.
  • Pathologic conditions with myocardial fat include healed myocardial infarction (MI); arrhythmogenic RV cardiomyopathy or dysplasia (ARVC); and others, such as cardiac lipoma, lipomatous hypertrophy of the interatrial septum, tuberous sclerosis complex, dilated cardiomyopathy, and cardiomyopathy with muscular dystrophy.
  • Recognition of patient age, characteristic locations of myocardial fat, myocardial thickness, and ventricular size helps in differentiating physiologic and pathologic myocardial fat at cardiac imaging; findings of wall motion abnormality and late gadolinium enhancement at MR imaging help narrow the diagnosis.

  • [Title] A very rare cardiac hibernoma in the right atrium: a case report.
  • Cardiac lipomas are rare tumors often detected incidentally during routine examinations.
  • They usually remain asymptomatic for a long time and cause arrhythmia, heart valve dysfunction, or embolization in the later stages.
  • In this article, we report a case of a 64-year-old patient with a very rare cardiac hibernoma located in the right atrium.
  • Transesophageal echocardiography and computed tomography have been shown to be useful for differentiating between benign and malignant tumors in order to plan surgery.
  • Histology confirmed diagnosis of a benign cardiac hibernoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Cardiac papillary fibroelastoma (CPF) is a rare primary benign cardiac tumor.
  • Before the use of echocardiography, the lesion was identified at autopsy or incidentally during cardiac surgery.
  • CPF is the third most common primary cardiac tumor after atrial myxoma and lipoma, and is the most common tumor of the valvular endothelium.
  • Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) permit diagnosis of the tumor in living patients.
  • CPF may be the cause of cerebrovascular or cardiac ischemia due to embolization or occlusion of the vascular ostia.
  • The case is reported of a patient with CPF of the aortic valve in whom TEE diagnosis was conducted and the tumor removed surgically.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Cardiomyopathy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • Lipomatous hypertrophy of the heart is a benign rare tumor characterized by fatty tissue deposits in the interatrial septum.
  • Its diagnosis during life is mostly seen incidental.
  • We report the case of a 74-year-old female patient, in which a cardiac mass protruding in the right atrium was diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiography.
  • The diagnosis of lipomatous hypertrophy of the interatrial septum is confirmed by MRI, which shows a well limited and not encapsulated tumor, appearing in increased signal density on T1-weighted images, and that decreases with fat-saturated sequences.
  • The benign and lipomatous nature of the lesion is confirmed, thus making the use of histology unnecessary.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] MRI and CT appearances of cardiac tumours in adults.
  • Primary cardiac tumours are rare, and metastases to the heart are much more frequent.
  • Myxoma is the commonest benign primary tumour and sarcomas account for the majority of malignant lesions.
  • Imaging plays a central role in their evaluation, and familiarity with characteristic features is essential to generate a meaningful differential diagnosis.
  • Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become the reference technique for evaluation of a suspected cardiac mass.
  • Computed tomography (CT) provides complementary information and, with the advent of electrocardiographic gating, has become a powerful tool in its own right for cardiac morphological assessment.
  • This paper reviews the MRI and CT features of primary and secondary cardiac malignancy.
