This report describes the case of a 55-year-old woman with a huge left atrial myxoma prolapsing into the left ventricular cavity through the mitral valve. Only a thin path allowed blood flow through the left atrial chamber to the left ventricle. Despite this obstruction, the patient developed only minimal symptoms. The giant mass was successfully removed and the patient is doing well one year after surgery without recurrence.
