Cardiac hemangioma is extremely rare and accounts for 2.8% of all detected benign heart neoplasms. In this article, we described the large hemangioma originating from interatrial septum and mimicking mitral stenosis. Opposite of myxoma, cardiac hemangioma mimicking mitral stenosis has not been previously reported in the English literature. The mass which was pathologically diagnosed as cavernous hemangioma was removed surgically. The postoperative course was uneventful. No recurrence of the tumor was noted at six months after operation.
