Abstract

A 22-year-old Caucasian woman presented with acrocyanosis of fingers and toes and dyspnea on exertion. Initial echocardiography showed multiple right and left atrial myxomata, mild enlargement of the left ventricle and severely depressed left ventricular systolic function. Resection of the tumors and replacement of the myxomatous mitral valve led to a complete resolution of echocardiographic evidence of left ventricular dysfunction, and was accompanied by disappearance of skin findings and symptoms of asthma.
