Abstract

Papillary fibroelastomas are benign primary cardiac tumors that usually arise from the valve apparatus and are rare in the pediatric population. Involvement of the tricuspid valve is even less common with only a few cases reported in the literature. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging is a valuable examination that aids in differentiating a tumor from a thrombus. We present the case of an 11-month-old girl referred by her pediatrician to investigate a murmur noted since birth. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a pathologically proven papillary fibroelastoma arising from the tricuspid valve characterized by magnetic resonance imaging in an infant.
