Abstract

Cardiac rhabdomyomas in patients with tuberous sclerosis complex are usually detected antenatally or during infancy, with subsequent stabilisation or spontaneous regression. Development of a new cardiac rhabdomyoma beyond infancy is very rare. We report a male child who needed resection of a large rhabdomyoma in neonatal life, and then developed a new-onset rhabdomyoma at 2 years of age in a different location, needing another resection. Routine surveillance for cardiac rhabdomyomas in asymptomatic patients with tuberous sclerosis is essential.
