The case of a patient with an intracardiac ectopic thyroid is reported. A cardiac tumor was found in a 66-year-old woman and was diagnosed by two-dimensional echocardiography. An intraoperative biopsy was performed, and the mass was recognized as an ectopic thyroid and treated with a conservative surgical approach because of the size, location, and relationship to adjacent structures. The 60-month follow-up shows normal echocardiographic images and the good clinical status of the patient.
