We describe the unique autopsy findings of a patient who died of a metastasizing giant right atrial adenocarcinoma containing few areas of typical myxoma. That no mucin-producing extracardiac tumor was detected pointed to the atrial adenocarcinoma as being the primary. We hypothesize that the adenocarcinoma may have developed from coexistent bland glandular structures within the myxoma.
