Abstract

A patient with superior caval vein compression due to malignant thymoma with unfrequent intracavitary cardiac growth presented. Diagnostic accuracy of cardiac involvement was higher using transesophageal echocardiography compared transthoracic echocardiography. The majority of the rare intracavitary cardiac thymomas seem to be confined to the right side of the heart.
