Primary tumours of the heart are rare. Myxomas are the most common primary cardiac tumours with an estimated incidence of 0.5 per million population per year. Myxomas are most commonly found in left atrium and are solitary in more than 90% cases. Familial myxomas are rarer and tend to be multiple. We report a rare case of multiple myxomas in the right heart which occurred sporadically, presenting with an episode of pre-syncope.
