Abstract
A 49-year-old female presented with a 1-month history of cough and low-grad e fever. Echocardiography showed a large mass in the right ventricle and pe rcutaneous right ventricular endomyocardial biopsy provided the histologic diagnosis. Despite radiotherapy and chemotherapy, the patient died. At auto psy, the metastatic deposit in the heart was larger than the primary cervic al carcinoma.
