Intra-cardiac thrombi can be incidentally found in recurrent melanoma and need careful assessment. An 81-year-old woman, with a history of malignant nasopharyngeal melanoma, was evaluated by echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance due to the detection of undefined masses localized both in right atrium and ventricle during contrast-enhanced thoraco-abdominal computed tomography.
