A case of primary cardiac chondrosarcoma in a 41-year-old woman who presented with cardiac tamponade and cardiac intracavitary obstruction is described. The tumor originated from the right atrium and invaded the adjacent right ventricular wall and interatrial septum. Primary cardiac chondrosarcoma is extremely rare, and its clinical, computed tomographic, echocardiographic, and magnetic resonance imaging findings are described.
