Primary cardiac tumors are rare. We report a 68-year-old man who was admitted to our hospital because of blood pressure reduction and cardiac tamponade. We could diagnose the location, size, morphologically and extent of the cardiac tumor (by CT, MRI) and establish that this tumor was malignant (by PET) before surgical operation. Histologicaly, the tumor was diagnosed as a cardiac angiosarcoma.
