Abstract

Abnormal incorporation of the common pulmonary vein can result in a fibromuscular partition of the left atrium, often appearing as an elongated mass on transthoracic echocardiographic examination. Differentiation from an atrial thrombus or tumour may sometimes be difficult. We report a case of a young patient with a left atrial mass detected by ultrasound study and correctly diagnosed by magnetic resonance imaging as remnant of the common pulmonary vein.
