Cardiac tumors are rare in children and consist of both primary and secondary tumors, with the majority being benign primary tumors. Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is the first-line imaging modalities, with 90% sensitivity and 95% specificity. The case is a one-day old male infant was born to a 40-year-old multi gravida mother. The infant was admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit with respiratory distress soon after birth. The infant was put on continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) support and got antibiotics. The chest x-ray showed up cardiomegaly. An Electrocardiogram (ECG) was suggestive of regular sinus rhythm and right ventricular hypertrophy with occasional ventricular extrasystole (VES). An Echocardiography performance revealed a multiple homogeneous masses intracardiac (right and left intraventricle lesion) with mild left and right outflow obstruction. There was a decreased left and right ventricular systolic function and moderate tricuspid regurgitation and mild mitral regurgitation. On one month follow up, the infant in well condition without heart failure sign. The echocardiography revealed no sign of Right Ventricular Ouflow Tract Obstruction (RVOTO)/Left Ventricular Outflow Tract Obstruction (LVOTO), no changes in the mass lesion, dimension, and distributions. On day fifth the patient was discharge. Until sixth months follow up, the patient in well condition, growth, and development without heart failure sign.
