A 63-year-old patient presented with dyspnea and chest distress. A computerized tomography and echocardiogram showed a cardiac mass in the right ventricle, which caused obstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract. Coronary angiography revealed a dense meshwork of the abnomorly capillary vessels originating from right coronary artery. The mass was completely excised under cardiopulmonary bypass. The mass attached right ventricle lateral wall and posterior triscupid leaflet. Histology was typical myomatous tissue.
