SOUSA, Jocerlano Santos de; TANAMATI, Carla; MARCIAL, Miguel Barbero  and  STOLF, Noedir Antonio Groppo. Calcified amorphous tumor of the heart: case report. Rev Bras Cir Cardiovasc [online]. 2011, vol.26, n.3, pp.500-503. ISSN 0102-7638.

Calcified amorphous tumor of the heart consists of a cardiac mass of rare nonneoplastic nature that mimics malignancy and causes symptoms due to obstruction or embolization of calcific fragments. We present a case of tumor 17-year-old young, male, in tricuspid valve, with classic pathological findings. It was preferred to approach for classic median esternotomy, installation of the circuit of extracorporal circulation and right atriotomy, exereses of tumor, DeVega's plasty in tricuspid valve and bicuspidization. The amatomopathological study demonstrated presence of extensive calcification and metaplastic bone areas. The patient had an uneventful hospitalization.
