Abstract

Cardiac rhabdomyoma is the most common tumour of the heart in infancy and childhood, representing approximately 60% of all primary cardiac tumours in these age groups. Though they have a tendency to regress with advancing age and are histologically benign, rhabdomyomas may cause mechanical obstruction to blood flow, arrhythmia, congestive cardiac failure and death and may be associated with underlying genetic syndromes such as tuberous sclerosis. We present the case of a primigravida in her early 20s with no significant medical history who was referred to the Fetal Medicine Unit at 34 weeks' gestation following the detection of an irregular fetal heartbeat. An anomaly scan at 20 weeks had been reported as normal.
