Introduction: Cardiac tumors can be divided to primary and secondary and to benign and malignant tumors. One of the benign tumors of the heart is cardiac fibroma. More than 80% of this tumor occurs in children; however its occurrence in neonates is very rare. Fewer than 100 cases have been reported.

Case Presentation: Our patient is a 10 day’s girl neonate with severe dyspnea, mild cyanosis, tachycardia (heart rate = 170-180/min) and obstruction of right ventricle (RV) outlet with very large tumor.

Conclusion: Cardiac tumors in neonate population must be considered in the diagnosis of arrhythmias, cardiac insufficiency, valvular disease, cardiomegaly or presence of murmurs. Early diagnosis before birth should be appropriate and accurate imaging devices must be used in detecting these tumors.
