There are multiple etiologies that are responsible for an intracardiac mass, either benign or malignant, among them intracardiac abscess or a primary tumor. There is little evidence of diagnostic and treatment approaches for intracardiac masses. We report a case of a 60-year-old male diagnosed with a left tight leiomyosarcoma that developed two left cardiac metastases. The current literature of cardiac metastases are mainly case reports and case series, there is an unmet need of more research on this area to come to the best diagnostic and treatment approach for this kind of patients for a better overall outcome.
