Primary cardiac intimal sarcoma is an extremely rare, aggressive malignant tumour with a poor prognosis. Intimal sarcoma arises from the sub-endothelial cells in the intima of the large arterial blood vessels. Here, we present a 44 years old female with primary cardiac intimal sarcoma, originating from the left ventricle and left atrium with involvement of the mitral valve.
