The cardiac myxoma is a benign clinical entity, characterised by the growth of a gelatinous mass composed by primary connective tissue and stroma, representing the most common cardiac tumour. Usually found within one of the cardiac chambers, it affects the left atrium in 75% of the cases. Rare cases in literature describe extra-cardiac locations of myxomas. In this paper, the authors report the clinical case of a patient with a primary myxoma of the pulmonary artery.
