Document Type : Case Report


Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, CMN “20 de Noviembre”, ISSSTE, Mexico City, Mexico.


Uterine neoplasm metastases to heart is infrequent, especially from uterine cancer, although it is possible because leiomyosarcoma is very invasive. We present a case of a 33 years old woman with 9 months evolution of this neoplasm.  By cardiac and brain symptomatology, this patient was diagnosed with cardiac and brain tumors in imaging studies. The patient underwent tumors resection by cardiac surgery and stereotaxic procedure and subsequent chemo and radiotherapy, without neurological and cardiac symptoms in her evolution.
