Abstract

Rhabdomyoma of the fetal heart is a rare disease accounting for about 1% of all fetal cardiac structural anomalies. They are often found in association with tuberous sclerosis complex. Large cardiac rhabdomyomas can compromise the cardiac function. We report a case of multiple large rhabdomyomas of the right and left ventricles, affecting the cardiac function, which was successfully treated with the chemotherapeutic and immunosuppressive medication everolimus, in a neonate with genetically confirmed tuberous sclerosis complex with multisystem manifestations. There was rapid involution of the tumors in response to everolimus therapy in this infant.
