A rare case of cardiac hemangioma obstructing the right ventricular outflow tract.

We report a case of a 35-year-old woman who presented with easy fatigability and exertional dyspnea. Imaging studies revealed a cardiac mass obstructing the right ventricular outflow tract. The diagnosis of vascular malformation consistent with cardiac hemangioma was confirmed on histopathologic examination. The postoperative course was uneventful and the patient was doing well after 6 weeks follow-up.
