Received Date: March 13, 2023; Published Date: April 10, 2023
The heart may rarely be affected by primary or secondary tumors. Cardiac osteosarcoma metastasis is extremely rare and has been documented in young adults as shown in a number of case reports. IT may occur by local extension or haematogenous spread [1-2]. Only 5% of cases affect the endocardium or chamber cavities. We report a rare case of a 17-year-old children with asymptomatic cardiac osteosarcoma metastasis suspected by trans-thoracic echocardiography for pre-chemotherapy assessment and then confirmed by MRI.
