Primary cardiac tumors are extremely rare in infants and children. They are generally benign histologically, but clinical spectrum varies from asymptomatic patient to ventricular arrhythmia, sudden cardiac death. This report describes the case of a 6-year-old girl with a large cardiac fibroma in the right ventricle. Surgical resection was indicated because of the right ventricular outflow tract obstruction caused by progression of the tumor and symptoms to patient. The fibroma was successfully completely resected and further follow-up evaluation was uneventful.
