An 18-year-old boy, suffering from respiratory distress, fatigue and palpitation for last two months, came to Apollo Hospitals Dhaka for treatment. After a careful examination, the patient’s echo showed a large mobile tumour occupying the RVOT and extending up to the main PA bifurcation. Cardiac MRI also showed a huge tumour attached to the right ventricle.
The rare heart tumour, of about 4.2 x 3.8 x 2.4 cm encroaching through right ventricular outflow tract into the pulmonary valve orifice, was successfully after a complicated surgery, which was performed by the cardiac surgeon Dr Sohail Ahmed.
The patient was discharged from the hospital without any complications on the seventh post-operative day.
