• Clinical and echocardiographic studies were done in a patient with a secondary right ventricular tumor. Stationary cardiac tumors produce differential diagnostic problems not associated with mobile cardiac tumors. In spite of limitations of specificity, positive diagnostic features do exist. This report emphasizes the usefulness as well as technical difficulties in assessing the presence of a secondary right ventricular tumor echocardiographically.
