Abstract

A 48-year-old woman presented with fatigue and vaginal spotting and was subsequently diagnosed with squamous cell cancer of the cervix. Computed tomography and positron emission tomography scans suggested widespread disease including possible involvement of the right ventricle. A 2D echocardiogram with Doppler showed a large right ventricular mass obstructing the tricuspid valve inflow. This report demonstrates the use of echocardiography and Doppler ultrasound in the diagnosis of a rare case of cardiac metastasis from cervical cancer.
