Abstract

We report a rare case of osteogenic sarcoma of the right pelvis with intracavitary metastases to the right heart through tumor growth along and within the inferior vena cava. Excision of the cardiac metastases was done as a palliative procedure, although the patient died of disseminated disease 6 months later.
