Cardiac myxoma is reported in the literature as the most common primary cardiac tumor, and the left atrium (LA) is the most common tumor location. Clinical pathologic studies have identified two specific types of cardiac myxoma, type 1 and type 2.A soft and villous like outer surface characterizes type 1 and is most likely to give rise to embolization to various organs. Type 2 has a more compact consistency and even surface. Long-term prognosis after total resection is usually exceptional with sporadic cases of tumor recurrence.This case report describes the late occurrence of a cerebral vascular ischemic event in a 46-year-old female after surgical resection of a left atrial myxoma.
