Cardiac myxomas are the most common primary cardiac tumors. A 69-year-old female patient with a history of operated left atrial myxoma 3 years ago readmitted to the hospital for evaluation of progressive dyspnea and atypical chest pain. The echocardiographic study revealed a new tumorous mass at the same localization. The tumor was resected with the underlying heart tissue by transseptal approach. Histologic analysis confirmed a recurrent myxoma. Postoperative echocardiographic examination revealed no abnormalities. We present this case because of its recurrence and accompany with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura.
