Rhabdomyosarcoma of the Heart Producing Right Ventricular Outflow Obstruction: An Unusual Case Diagnosed by Selective Angiocardiography

JAMA. 1963;184(12):939-942. doi:10.1001/jama.1963.03700250075011

Primary tumor of the right ventricular outflow tract was diagnosed in an unusual case by means of selective angiocradiography. This is the twelfth recorded case of primary malignant tumor in the region of the right ventricular outflow tract obstructing right ventricular outflow, and it is the first to be diagnosed by angiocardiographic means during the patient's life. There is a close correlation between the angiographic and necropsy findings.
