Primary cardiac tumors are extremely rare and can lead to significant neurologic symptoms if not diagnosed and treated appropriately. Cardiac myxomas represent the most common subtype of cardiac tumors and are typically located on the left side of the heart and, when diagnosed appropriately with echocardiography, are typically treated with surgical excision. Simultaneous presentation of myxoma and valvular insufficiency is rare and under-documented. This is a rare case of a patient with a left atrial myxoma and aortic insufficiency leading to cerebrovascular symptoms.
