A case report: a giant cardiac atypical lipoma associated with pericardium and right atrium

Among primary cardiac tumors, atypical lipoma is very rare. In particular, cases with lipomas in both the pericardium and the atria are even rare.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic and prognostic value of 18F-FDG PET/CT in patients with cardiac masses. Methods: Whole-body 18F-FDG PET/CT scans of 64 patients with cardiac masses from August 2012 to August 2018 were retrospectively analyzed (34 men, 30 women; mean age, 51.2±17.5 y). Patients were divided into malignant group and benign group. Quantitative analysis of 18F-FDG uptake (SUVmax, SUVmean, Volume and TLG) of the tumors were performed and was compared between the 2 groups. Receiver operator characteristic (ROC) curve was applied to determine the best cut-off value of differentiat...

CONCLUSIONS Prognosis for cardiac neoplasm surgical resection is favorable for primary cardiac tumors. The minimally invasive surgery of cardiac tumor resection can be an alternative to conventional operations in selected patients. PMID: 28469127 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 31 May 2016 Source:Journal of Cardiology Cases Author(s): Filippo Prestipino, Antonio Giovanni Cammardella, Massimo Chello Primary cardiac tumors are uncommon, and lipoma is the second most frequent benign type after myxoma. The treatment of choice is surgery, with the complete excision of the mass. Nevertheless, in the absence of symptoms and clinical signs the indication for surgery is less defined, and close follow up may be recommended. In the case we are going to report the patient was followed by periodical clinical and echographic examination, always reconsidering the possibil...

Abstract: Cardiac lipoma, which are primary cardiac tumors, are rare entities often detected incidentally during imaging. There have been very few reports on the right ventricle (RV) lipoma. Here, we present a case of RV infiltrating lipoma involving the interventricular septum (IVS) and the tricuspid valve. Clinical symptoms, diagnostic procedures, multimodality imaging characteristics, and treatment are discussed, and the complete clinical data of this case and relevant details of retrospective literature are reviewed. The study described the case of a 48-year-old woman who suffered from occasional palpitation after exer...

This article describes the protocols for CT and MR studies of cardiac masses as well as the morphologic findings, predominant locations, and most useful characteristics for characterizing benign cardiac masses and establishing the differential diagnosis with malignant cardiac tumors and non-neoplastic pseudotumors.

We report a case of interventricular septal lipoma complicated with mild tricuspid regurgitation a 65-year-old Chinese male. The patient presented with shortness of breath after exertion. His diagnosis was made with echocardiogram, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, cardiac computed tomography and post-operative histopathology. The patient underwent tumor resection and postoperative recovery was uneventful. He was asymptomatic with no recurrence at 8-month follow-up.
