Papillary fibroelastomas are the third most common cardiac tumors after myxoma and lipoma. Papillary fibroelastoma is the most common tumors located on cardiac valves. Papillary fibroelastomas are commonly located on aortic and mitral valves. Asymptomatic papillary fibroelastoma on tricuspid valve is extremely rare. In this article, we report a 75-year-old female patient with 1x1.5x1 cm sized papillary fibroelastoma on septal leaflets of tricuspid valve.
