A 10-day-old infant presented with tachypnea, harsh murmur, and cardiomegaly. Echocardiography revealed a multicystic mass invading the entire interventricular septum and protruding into the left ventricular cavity without left ventricular tract outflow tract obstruction and aortic stenosis. The mass was subsequently resected and biopsy revealed it to be a cardiac teratoma. We present an unusually rare case of an intramyocardial teratoma with associated congenital aortic stenosis.
