Abstract: A 3-month-old boy with tuberous sclerosis was diagnosed of biventricular heart tumor by means of 2D-echocardiogram. Three masses of tumor were excised from the right ventricle with the aid of cardiopulmonary bypass. Pathologic examination disclosed a cardiac rhabdomyoma. The boy is symptoms-free after 5 years of the operation. An echocardiogram taken at this time showed no-evidence of heart tumor. Pathology, diagnostic methods and surgical indications are commented. A review of selected surgically resected cases is also presented.
