Abstract

We present an unusually large intracardiac fungal ball for the first time in a preterm neonate measuring 18mm x 9 mm with congenital heart disease complicated by right atrial mycetoma attached to atrial septum protruding in and out of tricuspid valve producing tricuspid flow obstruction. Size of fungal ball rapidly progressed from 7mm x 8mm to 18mm x 9mm in a span of 8 days after starting systemic antifungals. Mycetoma was surgically removed salvaging RA septum.
