INTRODUCTION: Cardiac masses are potentially lethal, despite the majority of them being of benign origin. The differential diagnosis of left atrial masses includes mural thrombus, benign or malignant primary cardiac tumor, and secondary involvement from extracardiac tumors. Malignant lymphoma initially presenting with cardiac involvement is very rare and usually a late manifestation of the disease, with most patients being diagnosed at autopsy.
