Background: Fetal cardiac rhabdomyoma is a rare condition. Case: We report a case with cardiac mass discovered in utero by prenatal ultrasonography at 33 weeks of gestational age. An echogenic round-oval shape mass at the interventricular septum protrudes to left ventricle was observed. Results: After birth, the baby was followed up for 7 months with echocardiography, physical examination, and computerized tomography scan, to rule out anything related to tuberous sclerosis. The prognosis depends on the size, site, number of tumors, and co-existing congenital abnormalities. Management highly depends on the presence of outflow tract obstruction of the heart. However, some cases may regress after birth.
