Cardiac myxoma of right ventricle is rare. We report a 16-year-old girl who underwent an emergent surgical resection of right ventricular myxoma. She had syncopal attach in going to school and was referred to our hospital in emergency. There were no abnormal findings in brain computed tomography (CT) and electroencephalogram, but Levine IV/VI systolic ejection murmur was heard. Echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed the presence of large mass in the right ventricle which was floating into the pulmonary artery. The tumor was removed completely through the both of main pulmonary artery and right atrium using cardiopulmonary bypass. The tumor was attached to the right ventricle free wall by a pedicle, which was 5 x 3 cm in size and was diagnosed as myxoma by histopathological examination.
