Myxoid is a common type of liposarcoma. Cardiac metastasis of sarcoma is a rare diagnosis. Transthoracic echocardiography is a useful tool for beginning the diagnosis. Curative resection of metastasis and then combination systemic chemotherapy for advanced disease is recommended. We report a 50 year old woman who presented with a cardiac metastasis of high grade round cell liposarcoma to right atrium and right ventricle. The tumor was diagnosed with computed tomography and transthoracic echocardiography. The tumor size was 10*10 cm. This is the second report of successful resection of a large intracardiac metastasis of liposarcoma.
