Abstract
The heart is frequently the site of metastasis of various malignant tumors. Lung cancer is one of the most common primary tumors of cardiac metastasis and usually involves the pericardium or epicardium by direct invasion and/or lymphatic spread. However, metastasis of lung cancer involving the left ventricular endocardium is extremely rare. We report a patient with adenocarcinoma of lung, metastasized to the left ventricular myocardium and endocardium, diagnosed by echocardiography and 18-fludeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography. ? 2012 Korean Society of Echocardiography.
