Uterineintravenous leiomyomatosis with cardiac involvement.Radiol Case Rep. 2020 Aug; 15(8):1389-1393.RC
Intravenous leiomyomatosis is a histologically benign smooth muscle tumor that arises either by direct extension of a uterine leiomyoma into the adjacent veins or by vascular intimal smooth muscle proliferation. Herein, we report the case of a 60-year-old female who was noted to have suspected cardiac mass on elective echocardiography done electively for abnormal electrocardiographic findings. Computed tomography and cardiac magnetic resonance indicated the presence of an intravenous leiomyoma originating from the uterus and extending to the inferior vena cava and right atrium. The patient was managed with a single-stage surgery involving cardiopulmonary bypass and excision of the right atrial mass, excision of the inferior vena cava tumor thrombus, and total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.
