Abstract

Primary tumors of the heart are rare, with an incidence between 0.001% and 0.33% in autopsy findings, and with fibromas representing about 4% of benign cardiac tumors. We report the case of a cardiac fibroma in a 5-year-old child affected by Sotos syndrome. The mean sign was a ventricular tachycardia.
