Abstract

We describe for the first time the usefulness of transesophageal echocardiography for the identification of a primary leiomyoma of the inferior vena cava, which originated near its junction with the right atrium. A portion of the tumor was initially visualized in the right atrium during a transthoracic echocardiographic study, but its attachment in the inferior vena cava was evident only by transesophageal echocardiography using the transgastric approach.
