Abstract

We present a case report of a 28-year-old man with a huge tumor that occupies both dilated atria almost completely but not extending into the ventricles. Cardiac rhabdomyosarcoma (CR) is extremely rare in adult patients. Its rarity and heterogenous clinical presentation make diagnosis difficult.
