Multiple rhabdomyomas are a trigger to suspect tuberous sclerosis because it is present in more than 50% of cases of rhabdomyoma (Marx & Moran, 2001) Early presentation, as in this case, may be due to obstruction of blood flow and is associated with sudden death.
Other primary cardiac tumors include rhabdomyomas, fibrous histiocytomas, hemangiomas, and different types of sarcomas.
Rhabdomyomas are rare tumors that most often arise from cardiac muscle, but a significant minority of them occur in the upper aerodigestive tract and the head and neck region, most often in the postauricular area.
