Abstract

We present an unusual case of a patient with an inferior infarct caused by saphenous vein graft compression by an extracardiac malignant spindle cell tumour, a mechanism of myocardial ischaemia rarely described. This case also illustrates how chest X-ray and angiography can be useful for making an early diagnosis of a cardiac mass.
