We describe two cases of cardial myxomas. The first had a rare location in the left ventricle presenting with cardiac arrest because of left ventricular outflow obstruction. The other myxoma has a typical localisation in the left atrium with symptoms of heart failure and syncope because of mitral valve occlusion. Myxomas are rare benign tumours with a wide spectrum of symptoms from asymptomatic to very serious, depending of the localisation of the tumours in relation to the heart valves. Eccocardiography is the examination of choice when myxoma is suspected. The treatment and way to final diagnostic is surgery.
