Abstract

Known as a rare benign cardiac tumor, epicardial lipoma is often an asymptomatic condition discovered due to increasing use of diagnostic imaging techniques. We report a case of a 54-year old patient referred to our institution with mild dyspnea, chough and an enlarged cardiac siluette on a routine chest X-ray. A large intrapericardial mass suggestive for lipoma encompassing the left and right ventricles was detected by echocardiographic examination and computer tomography scan. Resection of a 650 g mass with right ventricular infundibulum origin was performed via sternotomy, with histopathological confirmation of epicardial lipoma.
