|Abstract:||In a 50 year old woman, transthoracic echocardiography showed a left atrial mass. Transoesophageal echocardiography delineated its attachment. Additionally, cystic spaces were seen arranged concentrically in the shape of a star in the centre of the tumour. Surgical excision followed. Histopathological examination confirmed myxoma with areas of haemorrhage and necrosis. This case highlights the acoustic property of myxomas in a rare and beautiful manner and emphasises the superior transoesophageal imaging of myxomas.|
