Background: Fetal cardiac rhabdomyoma is a rare condition. Case: We report a case with cardiac mass discovered in utero by prenatal ultrasonography at 33 weeks of gestational age. An echogenic round-oval shape mass at the interventricular septum protrudes to left ventricle was observed. Results: After birth, the baby was followed up for 7 months with echocardiography, physical examination, and computerized tomography scan, to rule out anything related to tuberous sclerosis. The prognosis…

Case Report: Bronchogenic Cyst in the Right Atrium of a Young Woman
A 31-year-old woman was referred to the authors' hospital for evaluation of a cardiac mass in the right atrium that was identified as a cardiac cyst and was surgically removed, which revealed an extremely rare bronchogenic cyst.
Giant Lipoma Originating from the Right Ventricular Infundibulum - A Case Report
A case of a 54-year old patient referred to the authors' institution with mild dyspnea, chough and an enlarged cardiac siluette on a routine chest X-ray, with large intrapericardial mass suggestive for lipoma encompassing the left and right ventricles detected by echocardiographic examination and computer tomography scan.
Heterotopic Pregnancy: A Clinical Case Report
A case of 27 years old woman with heterotopic pregnancy, who had a typical presentation of severe lower abdominal pain following amenorrhoea for 2½ months, is reported.
Fetal MRI demonstrates glioependymal cyst in a case of sonographic unilateral ventriculomegaly
This case highlights consideration of the rare diagnosis of glioependymal cyst when a cystic lesion associated with cerebral malformations, particularly dysgenesis of the corpus callosum, is demonstrated and fetal MRI suggests an ischaemic origin.
Management of a massive leiomyoma in pregnancy
The patient underwent a laparotomy in pregnancy to remove the leiomyoma, which was found to contain fluid-filled cavities and the uterine cavity was not breached at the time of surgery.
Left Hemitruncus With Tetralogy of Fallot and Right Aortic Arch: Rare Survival Beyond the First Decade
A rare case of left hemitruncus with tetralogy of Fallot and a right-sided aortic arch with successful surgical correction of the anomaly is described.
Full Term Abdominal Pregnancy with Healthy Newborn: A Case Report
This is a rare variety of ectopics pregnancies whose evolution to the end remains exceptional and is associated with significant perinatal mortality because of fetal malformations and maternal morbidity related to hemorrhagic, infectious and occlusive risk.
Pregnancy complicated with a giant splenic cyst: a case report and review of the literature
The most feared complication of a splenic cyst in pregnancy is spontaneous rupture, which in the third trimester is associated with a perinatal mortality rate as high as 70%.
Left ventricular lipoma.
The case of a 21-year-old female referred to the authors' institution complaining of dizziness when standing up, which improved in the dorsal decubitus position and at rest, after a few minutes, which allowed the diagnosis of the left ventricular tumor suggestive of lipoma.


Cardiac rhabdomyoma. Rare cause of fetal death.
The causes of fetal death in patients with cardiac rhabdomyoma are analyzed and the possibility of fetal surgical management is proposed.
