Primary cardiac tumors are quite rare in children, and only a small portion are malignant. Presenting symptoms may be nonspecific, often mimicking those of congestive heart failure, pulmonary embolism, and syncope. Due to location and potential detrimental outcomes, diagnosis and management are of the utmost importance. Secondary and metastatic cardiac tumors are more frequent in comparison to primary tumors of the heart. Primary Hodgkin lymphoma of the heart is exceedingly rare with no standardized approach for treatment. Here we describe a case of an adolescent girl with primary cardiac Hodgkin lymphoma.
