The differential diagnosis of intracardiac masses is challenging. Cardiac myxomas are benign primary heart tumors and most often are confused with thrombi in diagnosis. In some cases, the embolic complication of intracardiac masses can be fatal. We present a patient who had two nightmare complications simultaneously. A mobile left atrial mass detected and decided surgical excision. But the mass had vanished one day after and caused ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) and bilateral lower limb ischemia.
