Abstract

Atypical presentation of myxomas in the two cases described here arise from the fact that both patients were asymptomatic and both showed unexpected echocardiographic findings. Asymptomatic presentation is very rare, and occurs in only about 10% of individuals. Atrial myxomas discovered on incidental echocardiography is also a rare phenomenon, as seen in our cases. Early diagnosis and timely surgical treatment allow these patients to live a completely asymptomatic life.
