Case report

Following videos show an anomaly discovered in a  28 weeks fetus in a patient with no previous significant background.
No other abnormal findings were seen during the examination. 
The location and appearance of the lesion, and the large pericardial effusion associated, are compatible with the diagnosis of cardiac hemangioma. The diagosis was confirmed postnatally.

Videos 1-4: 2D images of different views of the fetal heart show an extra-cardiac solid mass in the right side compatible with hemangioma with pericardial effusion.
