Kardiyak miksomalar çocukluk çağının nadir görülen iyi huylu tümörleridir. Genellikle sol atriyumdan kaynaklanırlar ve düzensiz yüzeyleri nedeniyle embolik olaylar açısından yüksek risk taşırlar. Erişkinlerde kalp yetmezliği, pulmoner ödem gibi kardiyak bulgularla başvuru sıktır, bunlar olmadan nörolojik semptomlarla başvuru az görülür. Literatürde, çocukluk çağında nörolojik semptomlar hakkında ayrıntılı bir incelemeden sonra kardiyak miksoma tanısı alan sınırlı sayıda vaka bildirimi bulunmaktadır. Burada, diplopi ve ataksi gibi demiyelinizan nörolojik
hastalıkları taklit eden semptomlarla başvuran ve ayrıntılı nörolojik değerlendirme sonrası sol atriyal miksoma tanısı koyulan 16 yaşında kız hasta sunulmaktadır.

Cardiac myxomas are rare benign tumors in childhood. They most commonly occur in left atrium. Irregular surface of atrial myxomas is associated with a high risk of embolic events. The majority of cardiac myxoma patients are diagnosed with cardiac symptoms. In the literature, there are a limited number of case reports on neurological symptoms in childhood which are diagnosed with cardiac myxoma after a detailed examination. We present a 16-year-old female patient with left atrial myxoma who presented with neurologic symptoms like diplopia and ataxia mimicking demyelinating neurological diseases.
