Abstract

Cardiac lipomas, extremely rare benign tumours, can develop in the pericardial surface or inside the cardiac chambers. We report three cases, 2 intracardiac (one in the left and right atrium at the level of the interatrial septum and the other in the right ventricle) and one epicardial at the level of the left atrial roof. All patients underwent surgery and are now asymptomatic.
