A case of cardiac myxoma with several signs and symptoms of systemic vasculitis (livedo reticularis, weakness, arthralgia, slight fever, anaemia, enhanced erythrocyte sedimentation rate) was reported. Surgical removal of the myxoma from the left atrium of the heart resulted in complete resolution of the symptoms and signs. The diagnosis of pseudovasculitis caused by cardiac myxoma was made.
