Uterine leiomyosarcoma is a very rare tumor. The risk of developing metastasis is high especially for lung. Some localizations are possible but infrequent. The heart is not a body filter and cardiac metastases are exceptional. We are reporting a case of a 57 years old female patient who had cardiac metastasis of an uterine leiomyosarcoma. Postmenopausal bleeding revealed the uterine tumor. The cardiac metastasis was discovered during an echocardiography indicated for pre-chemotherapy cardiac work-up. A magnetic resonance imaging revealed a mass connection between the mitral valve and the aortic sigmoid. The patient was placed on chemotherapy. Cardiac metastasis of a uterine leiomyosarcoma are very rare and have been rarely reported in the literature. The presence of cardiac metastasis in a patient need to be discussed inside a multidisciplinary committee before any symptoms.
