Introduction: Two recent studies shows that cardiac metastases occur rather frequently, 13% in a population of serotoninproducing NETs(Noordzij 2014) and 4% in our own patient kohort of ileal NETs(Calissendorff 2014).
Aim(s): Present an unusual case of NET metastase
Materials and methods: This woman presented 2009 at the age of 63 with episodes of vertigo and headaches. A CT scan of the head was normal but transthoracic echocardiography performed in search of an embolic source showed a 5 cm structure in the vicinity of the right ventricle. MRI demonstrated that that the structure was lodged within the myocardium and with the same signal intensity pattern as myocardium.
