Cardiac rhabdomyoma presenting as infective endocarditis: a case report

  • Nawal Azhari (a1), Manal Hakim (a1) and Ghaith Barefah (a1)

We report a case of cardiac rhabdomyomas in an infant who presented with right ventricular tachycardia, and a clinical picture of infective endocarditis. Typical features of tuberous sclerosis developed subsequently. To the best of our knowledge, cardiac rhabdomyoma has not been reported previously in association with infective endocarditis.
