The diagnosis and treatment of cardiac lymphangioma: a case
Cardiac lymphangioma is a rare disease. Until now, there have been only a few cases of cardiac lymphangioma reported in the literature.

Published in the journal Medicine, the authors report the case of a 57-year-old female patient with cardiac lymphangioma from atrial septum. Color Doppler echocardiography was performed, which revealed a tumor occupying a large amount of space in the left and right atrium.

The patient underwent thoracoscopic cardiac tumor resection under general anesthesia according to the procedure used for benign tumors. The patient recovered completely and was discharged home. Follow-up color Doppler echocardiography scans obtained from 6 months to 2 years after the operation showed no recurrent mass.

Key takeaway:-
Once the tumor is detected, surgical treatment should be implemented as soon as possible.
