Amit Kumar Chaurasia, S Harikrishnan, S Bijulal, Dinesh Choudhary & Tharakan JA
Cardiac rhabdomyomas are often associated with tuberous sclerosis in infants. We report a 5 month old child presented with a tumor in the right ventricle and echocardiography features of rhabdomyoma. Both the child and her father had cutaneous features of tuberous sclerosis. In the absence of features of congestive heart failure, surgery is rarely required.
