Glandular component is a very rare finding in myxomas which are one of the most common primary benign cardiac tumors. This rate was found ranging 1% to 5% in various series. They were found more common in middle aged women. Histogenesis of myxomas with glandular component is not known clearly. Cardiac myxomas with glandular component could show recurrence and malignity so they had to be followed. We presented a myxoma case with glandular component which was located in left atrium in 38 years old woman in this report.
