  • Descrição: Byline: Shuyuan Wang, Meng Li, Li Zhang,Mingxing Xie Keywords: cardiovascular imaging; immunocompetent; multimodal imaging; primary cardiac lymphoma Primary cardiac lymphoma (PCL) is a rare extranodal lymphoma that involves only the heart and/or pericardium. It is fatal in the absence of a prompt diagnosis and adequate therapy. Here, we report an immunocompetent 55-year-old Chinese man with palpitations and occasional chest distress for 1 month. Multimodal imaging work-up showed a tumor infiltrated into the myocardium, which greatly contribute to a timely pathology diagnosis of PCL. Article Note: Drs Shuyuan Wang and Meng Li contributed equally to this work. CAPTION(S): Movie S1. Indicate the Figure 1A. TTE left ventricular short-axis views demonstrated the tumor formation in both the RV free wall and the LV anterior wall Movie S2. Indicate the Figure 1C. MCE showed rich perfusion in the thickened myocardium Movie S3. Indicate the Figure 1D. CMRI showed that the tumor infiltrated the RV free wall and extended across the interventricular septum into the LV anterior wall Movie S4. Indicate the Figure 1E. CMRI showed that the tumor infiltrated up to the pulmonary artery root Movie S5. Indicate the Figure 1F. Post-contrast-enhanced CMRI showed non-homogenous gadolinium enhancement of the tumor, areas of non-enhancement implied pericardial effusion (asterisk)
