Abstract

Ventricular tachycardia with underlying structural heart disease is a potential dangerous pathology in children. In most cases, ventricular tachycardia occurs after ventricular surgery for congenital anomalies. Ventricular tachycardia associated with primary heart tumors is extremely rare. A 4-year-boy presented with primary heart tumor, fibroma, manifesting as ventricular tachycardia. Manifestation of the disease was ventricular tachycardia. The complete resection of the tumor was performed successfully. The diagnosis was confirmed histologically.
