We present the case of a 41-year-old male patient with pericardial effusion and intra cardiac mass, mixoma like, which produces a valve effect in the tricuspid valve. Due to the impossibilities to perform a radical surgery and the anatomopathological diagnosis we decided to do a total explant and perform an orthotopic heart transplant. The impossibility to perform a radical surgery and the diagnosis of angiosarcoma of cells fused, decided us to perform a total cardiac explant and an orthotopic heart transplant finally realized in the second surgical time, 23 days after the diagnostic surgery.

Palabras clave : Angiosarcoma; Right atrium; Cardiac transplantation.
