Primary cardiac tumor (PCT) is a very rare clinical presentation, with myxoma representing the most common type. Majority of the myxomas are found in the left atrium along with a female dominance. This report describes a very rare case of a 67-year-old woman presenting with PCT, complete heart block, and triple-vessel coronary artery disease. The patient was planned to undergo a coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) along with concomitant tumor excision and epicardial pacemaker insertion. Since the patient and her family did not consent for the CABG, transvenous permanent pacemaker insertion was performed with an advice to follow-up for CABG and tumor excision.
