Abstract

Right Atrial Fungal Mass Mimicking Cardiac Myxoma in an Immunocompetent Patient-A Case Report

The incidence of cardiac fungal infections have become increased due to increased usage of central venous line, in situ catheters, prosthetic heart valves, and the use of antineoplastic drugs, antibiotics and steroids. Cardiac involvement may present as endocarditis, myocarditis, pericarditis or intracardiac fungal mass.
