Leukemic infiltrates of the heart: CT findings.
Although primary cardiac tumors are rare, metastatic disease to the heart is not uncommon. This is particularly true of the leukemias. Because of increased patient survival, cardiac leukemic infiltrates may assume a larger role in the gamut of leukemic complications. We present a case of massive cardiac leukemic infiltrates in which CT was instrumental in diagnosis and patient management. Relevant pathologic and radiologic features are reviewed.
