[Familial myxoma. Report of a case and review of the literature].


This is a report of two family members (mother and her first son) with atrial myxoma detected by echocardiography, computed axial tomography and cardiac catheterization, the former located in the left atrium and the latter in the right ventricle. They were successfully treated with heart surgery. We emphasize the need to detect myxoma in the other members of the family, especially when it is of multicentric localization.
