      Primary tumors of the heart are very rare diseases, comprising up to 0,0017–0,02 % cases in cardiologic practice. Nevertheless, in many cases they are clinically malignant and even fatal. These patients have high risk of sudden death, occurring in 30 % of cases. Three clinical cases of left atrium myxoma characterized by predominantly extracardiac manifestations with sudden onset, progressive course and severe intoxication syndrome are presented.

Key words: myxoma, diagnosis, treatment.
