This work is a description of a rare case of a primary heart tumor that has been subjected to surgical treatment. Intravital diagnosis of this disease is complex. The most important diagnostic study is echocardiography. Extends the possibilities of visualization of the tumor, transesophageal 3D echocardiography, allowing to obtain full volumes, live three-dimensional images and three-dimensional magnification.
