  • Cardiac hemangiomas are extremely rare benign tumors. We describe the case of a right atrial hemangioma in a neonate diagnosed prenatally and successfully operated 10 days after spontaneous delivery. This unusual case illustrates the importance of prenatal diagnosis and delivery of the baby next to a pediatric center with a department of appropriately specialized cardiovascular surgery.
