Primary cardiac sarcoma is extremely rare and seldom causes symptoms until late in its course. Discomfort may occur only when the mass causes obstruction to the intracardiac flow. Early diagnosis is vital because it allows prompt and relevant management. We describe the history and echocardiographic features in four patients with primary cardiac sarcoma and review the current literature.
