The many faces of cardiac lipoma-an egg in the heart!

Abstract:
A 51 year-old man underwent staging CT for a malignant renal tumour, revealing a right atrial mass (Figure, Panel A). Transoesophageal echocardiography also demonstrated the mass (Panel B) but neither imaging modality was able to characterise it further. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) demonstrated an ovoid (28x18x19mm), well-circumscribed, and mobile mass attached to the right lateral wall of the atrium below the superior vena cava, with several aspects typical for adipose tissue.
