Incidence of cardiac tumor is low among all tumors, but cardiac myxoma is a frequent benign tumor of the heart. Though cardiac myxoma has the classic triad (obstructive cardiac signs, embolism and constitutional manifestations), cardiac investigations may not be performed until the presence of cerebral embolism or cardiac problems, as in the case reported here. It is the reason that constitutional symptoms like myalgia, muscle weakness, arthralgia, fever and weight loss may be overlooked in the absence of any history of cardiac problems or may be confused as other specific immunological diseases. We present a case of a 26-year-old woman whose clinical manifestations of left atrial myxoma were multiple arthralgia, fever caused by constitutional symptoms, hemiplegia and aphasia caused by embolic cerebral infarction.
