Abstract

We were very impressed with the work of Shikuma et al. in their approach to this tumor, with unusual appearance, later proved to be cardiac lymphoma comprising large B cells. We also advocate for utilising multiple imaging modalities in such an instance. A single imaging modality is often simply not able to provide a comprehensive assessment. The different modalities provide information critical to the diagnosis and management of these uncommon tumours—which have a poor prognosis. This concurs with the tenets advocated by Mato et al.
