Résumé
To date, myxoma on a mechanical valve annulus has not been reported. The case is reported of a 74-year-old woman who was admitted to hospital following the identification of an intracardiac tumor mass. Six years previously, the patient had received a mechanical valve implanted in the mitral position. Transesophageal echocardiography revealed a mobile hypoechogenic tumorous mass attached to the anterior annulus of the prosthesis. The tumor was successfully treated by surgical excision, and a diagnosis of myxoma was confirmed both clinically and pathologically.
