Abstract: 
We present a 29-year-old female, who was hospitalized because of dyspnea and generalized edema. The patient had a history of splenectomy due to resistant idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura (ITP) and also a history of smooth muscle tumor of the uterus with uncertain malignant potential (STUMP). Echocardiography revealed large pericardial effusion and an elongated mass inside the inferior vena cava and right atrial cavity. The patient underwent only cardiac surgery procedure under monitoring by trans esophageal echocardiography. The inferior vena cava and right atrium were exposed and the large mass was removed. Histological examination revealed a spindle cell tumor.
