We present a case of a 70-year-old woman with exertional shortness of breath. A transthoracic echocardiogram showed a large mass on the ventricular side of the pulmonary valve. The anatomy of the mass was additionally investigated with a transesophageal echocardiogram, which delineated the anatomical details of the structure. The mass was surgically excised, and histopathology confirmed a cardiac papillary fibroelastoma.
