During the neonatal period, rhabdomyomas represent the majority of the cardiac tumors and their clinical manifestations are notably variable. Symptoms of rhabdomyomas depend on the presence of intracardiac obstructions, myocardial involvement, and rhythm disturbances. Most of the cardiac rhabdomyomas regress in follow-ups, but some of them need medical/surgical intervention because of the resistant atrial or ventricular arrhythmia during the neonatal period. In the present case study, an 8-day-old neonate whose bigeminy nonconducted premature atrial early pulse–related bradycardia and cardiac rhabdomyoma–related resistant atrial flutter were detected and successfully treated was presented.
