SummaryWe describe a multicystic tumor of the atrial septum associated with a fatal cardiac malformation. The tumor contained bronchogenic cysts and two types of vascular hamartomas. A complex form of double outlet right ventricle was present. We speculate that this tumor formed at a critical time in cardiac embryogenesis and contributed to the abnormal formation of the heart.
