Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is a rare malignant vascular tumor which originates from the vascular endothelial or dendritic cells and has a moderate malignancy between benign hemangioma and malignant hemangiosarcoma, arising from vascular structures. Radical resection of epithelioid hemangioendothelioma is recommended, due to both its malignant nature and the adverse effects of associated complications on mortality and morbidity. In this article, we present a rare case of primary cardiac epithelioid hemangioendothelioma accompanied by a left atrial myxoma which was treated by resection.
