Intravenous leiomyomatosis is a rare clinical entity which arises from the uterus and extends into the venous system reaching up to the inferior vena cava (IVC), right atrium (RA), and pulmonary vasculature. Very few cases have been reported with intracardiac extension. Complete resection of the tumor is essential for favorable outcomes. However, this requires a multidisciplinary approach with appropriate imaging and planning. We report a case of uterine leiomyomatosis with extension to the IVC, RA, right ventricle, and superior vena cava.
