There is a very low prevalence of cardiac tumor (fibroma )in the Younger population. Cardiac fibromas arise from heart fibroblasts, and these tumors are primarily located in the ventricles or in the interventricular septum. Symptomatic tumors are treated by resection. By contrast, asymptomatic tumors require a long‑term follow‑up or surgical resection as a preventive measure to avoid complications. The present study reports the case for Young female patient 25 years old presented with palpitation with pre-syncope for 6 months. ECG showed Sinus rhythm, Echo Showed Elongated mobile Mass attached to the mid part of the IVS swinging in LV, protruded through Left Ventricular Outflow Tract creating transient gradient estimated by 110 mmhg, this mass hits aortic valve leaflets lead to mild regurgitation grade I-II/IV The Mass measured by 29 x 22mm in diameter (Myxomas can't be excluded).

CT Showed LV mass 26 x 20 mm prolapsed to the aortic sinus of valsalva and the aortic root seem adherent to the Left Ventricle wall. After IV contrast these lesion appear hypodense mass with minimal enhancement. The patient underwent surgical excision of the tumor, and Sample sent for histopathological examination that confirmed the diagnosis of a cardiac fibroma. The patient had a good postoperative recovery and was discharged on sixth postoperative day.
