Sažetak
We present a case of pulmonary valve fibroelastoma diagnosed by echocardiogram which was confirmed by surgical resection in a patient in whom elective coronary artery bypass surgery was performed. The patient had no clinical or constitutional symptoms suggesting the presence of an intracardiac tumor. Routine preoperative transthoracic echocardiography revealed a pulmonary valve tumor. Histopathological analysis resulted in a diagnosis of papillary fibroelastoma. Papillary fibroelastomas are rare and benign cardiac tumors.They usually arise from the cardiac valves. In the literature we found only a few cases, so it seems there is a need for further description of additional cases of pulmonary valve fibroelastoma.
