The two-dimensional echocardiographic diagnosis of multiple cardiac rhabdomyomas and evaluation of tachycardia in a fetus are presented. Prenatal echocardiographic examination defined the extent of tumor involvement and mechanism of the tachycardia and demonstrated the lack of fetal hemodynamic compromise. Perinatal, clinical and therapeutic implications are discussed.
