Abstract:

Malignant cardiac tumours occurring on the left side are vanishingly rare entities. We describe a case of a 73‐year‐old male who underwent surgery for a left‐sided cardiac tumour following initial presentation with transient ischaemic attacks. In addition to the unusual presentation and subsequent metastatic pattern to the femur, the tumour's pathological diagnosis was that of an epithelioid variant of an angiosarcoma which has not been previously described in this anatomical location.
