Intracardiac metastasis of the testicular cancer is very rare phenomenon. A 30-year-old-man with a history of testicular rhabdomyosarcoma and lung metastases was found to have an intracardiac filling defect in a surveillance computed tomography scan 3 years after the initial diagnosis. A cardiac magnetic resonance imaging study was performed for further evaluation and demonstrated a lobulated, heterogeneously enhancing mobile mass within the right ventricle attaching to the anterior papillary muscle. Patient underwent an open surgical resection of the cardiac mass that was confirmed metastasis of testicular rhabdomyosarcoma into the right ventricular papillary muscle and tricuspid valve. To our knowledge, this is the first report in the literature that describes metastasis to a papillary muscle and tricuspid valve from a testicular neoplasm.
