Özet

Primary cardiac tumours are uncommon, with an estimated incidence between 0.0017% and 0.19%. Cardiac myxoma is a rare cause of cerebrovascular disease, especially in children. This case report emphasizes the importance of cardiac evaluation, especially echocardiographic examination in cases with stroke and peripheral embolism.
