Tumors of the heart are not commonly met with and their clinical diagnosis up to the present time has been difficult, if at all possible, to make. Tumors of the aorta are much less frequent than those of the heart. Newer clinical diagnostic methods are promising much, however, in the early recognition of these cases. The tumor of the aorta attached to the heart which we found in our case has no counterpart in the literature. It became of interest, therefore, to describe this case not only from its clinical but also its anatomical aspects.
