Cardiac tumors in children are sufficient rare pathology. The frequency of morbidity, according to various authors, ranges from
0.0017% to 0.33%. Fibroma takes the second place on frequency of primary cardiac tumors. Despite benign nature, fibroma characterized
by a progressive growth, which may lead to hard hemodynamic disturbance at the expence of obstruction or provocation
We reported a rare case of successful resection fibroma of right ventricle in a seven-month age child. The tumor didn’t obstruct blood
flow and generate arrhythmias, although at operation time sizes of tumor double increased. The indication for resection served
intense growth the last two months.
