ABSTRACT Homem de 65 anos apresentando emagrecimento, dispnéia e derrame pleural (DP) recorrente. A avaliação cardiológica evidenciou ruflar diastólico (3/6) no foco mitral e hiperfonese da 1ª bulha. O ecocardiograma e o estudo hemodinâmico mostraram uma grande massa tumoral no átrio esquerdo (AE), sugerindo mixoma e hipertensão pulmonar. A biópsia pleural revelou pleurite crônica inespecífica. O paciente foi submetido à operação com circulação extracorpórea para exérese do tumor de AE e o estudo histopatológico confirmou o diagnóstico de mixoma. O DP tem sido manifestação muito rara do mixoma cardíaco (MC), que às vezes apresenta somente sinais e sintomas inespecíficos de doença inflamatória crônica.

    ABSTRACT: We conclude that IL-6 should be considered a marker of myxoma. The frequent immunologic abnormalities in patients with cardiac myxoma may be related to the IL-6 secreted from the myxoma itself.

    ABSTRACT: Cardiac tumors are a rare, but potentially curably form of heart disease. A high index of clinical suspicion is necessary for diagnosis as these tumors have protean manifestations that mimic a variety of other cardiac and noncardiac diseases. Presently, M-mode and two-dimensional echocardiography are utilized as safe, reliable, and noninvasive imaging modalities. Seventy-five per cent of these tumors are benign, with myxoma accounting for 50% and rhabodomyoma comprising 20% of lesions. Various histologic types of sarcoma are the predominant malignant cardiac neoplasms. With strict attention to avoiding perioperative tumor embolization, surgical resection of these lesions can be accomplished with minimal morbidity and mortality. Sixteen consecutive primary tumors of the heart have been surgically treated at Duke University Medical Center since 1966 with no perioperative deaths and no late recurrences.

    ABSTRACT: We reviewed the Mayo Clinic records of 56 patients who underwent operation for cardiac myxoma and 29 cases in which cardiac myxoma was found at autopsy. Five patients had a "complex" of unusual findings including multiple pigmented skin lesions (lentiginosis), myxoid fibroadenomas of the breast, skin myxomas, and primary pigmented nodular adrenocortical disease (a cause of Cushing's syndrome). Four of these five patients had multiple cardiac myxomas. Three of the four patients who underwent surgical excision of the cardiac myxomas had recurrent myxomas (the only recurrences in our series), and one of these patients had a second recurrence. The occurrence of multiple and recurrent myxomas in patients with the complex was significantly (p less than 0.001) higher than in our 80 patients with sporadic myxomas. The world literature was searched for cases of cardiac myxomas with the unusual associations of the complex, and also for familial, multiple, and recurrent myxomas. A group of patients were identified who had unusual biologic behavior including early development of myxomas, atypical myxoma locations, and a high risk for the development of recurrent myxomas. For these patients, we recommend a thorough search for multiple tumors at operation, close postoperative follow-up, and careful screening of family members.
