Primary cardiac tumors are uncommon during infancy and childhood. Myxomas originating in the right ventricle are even less common in pediatric patients. A 2-year-old girl was referred to our hospital under a diagnosis of right ventricular tumor. The aim of the operation was extirpation of the tumor. Perioperative cardiac arrest occurred when the tumor obstructed the pulmonary artery. After promptly establishing cardiopulmonary bypass, the tumor was removed from the right ventricular outflow tract. The patient was discharged on the 13th postoperative day without complications.
