A cardiac myxoma may manifest as miscellaneous and uncharacteristic presentations. These unusual aspects of cardiac myxomas can be rare clinical presentations, special patient populations, unusual locations, and special pathology, which may lead to a delayed diagnosis, improper checkups, and subsequent untimely treatment, eventually resulting in unexpected poor prognosis. Therefore, the diagnosis of cardiac myxomas can be challenging because of these unusual aspects. In order to get a better understanding of a cardiac myxoma and to facilitate an early diagnosis and proper treatment, the unusual aspects of cardiac myxomas are described here.
