Introduction:
Gross tumor formation in any of the cardiac chambers is rare, particularly at the time of presentation and in cases of lymphoma. Symptoms are usually very subtle and non-specific, particularly in the setting of co-existing morbidities. We report an unusual case of a 26 year old man presenting with a gross intracardiac mass, testicular mass and unilateral peripheral facial paralysis, who was ultimately diagnosed with T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma (T-LBL).

Case Report:
The patient is a 26-year-old man, presenting with a testicular tumor and peripheral facial paralysis noted 21 d before admission. Physical exam revealed a left peripheral facial paralysis and ipsilateral conjunctival congestion, bilateral supraclavicular and inguinal lymph nodes, left axillary nodes and a left testicular tumor measuring 7 cm × 5 cm, as well as signs consistent with bilateral (predominantly right sided) pleural effusion. On electrocardiograms (ECG), there was sinus tachycardia, ST-segment elevation in leads II, III and aVF and negative T waves in all leads except aVR. Laboratory values were remarkable for anemia (hematocrit 36%), leukocytosis (13000/mL), thrombocytosis (615000/mL) and lactate dehydrogenase of 1787 UI/L.....
