Abstract

A 43-year-old female, admitted because of acute infero-posterior myocardial infarction, showed angiographic findings of 100% occlusion of left circumflex artery. Echocardiographic findings showed inferior hypokinesis, while a large left intraatrial tumor was also observed. The coronary angiography on the 17th hospital day showed complete reperfusion of the culprit lesion without stenosis. On the 21st hospital day, the removal operation of the tumor was performed. Pathological findings showed typical cardiac myxoma, and the etiology of the occlusion at the culprit vessel was presumed to be closely related to the existence of the left atrial tumor. <br>(Internal Medicine 36: 31-34, 1997)
