We describe the case of a patient diagnosticated of pulmonary embolism, in whom transthoracic echocardiography demostrated a large mass. It was completaly removed and histologic examination showed a very calcification myxoma. This case is of interest because localitation and extension of myxoma, the atypical histologic appearance, and in fact the diagnosis and treatment prevented new pulmonary embolism that could be lethal.
