Abstract

A 32-year-old primigravida at 8 weeks of gestation presented with gangrene of both great toe for 10 days. Two years back, she had an episode of Raynaud’s phenomenon involving left ring finger diagnosed as primary Raynaud’s phenomenon and was treated with nifedipine following which she improved. In the following months, she had 2-3 similar episodes of Raynaud’s phenomenon in the upper extremity which were less severe. On diagnostic evaluation she was found to have an intra cardiac mass arising from mitral leaflet. We present a case of atrial myxoma initially presenting as an isolated Raynaud’s phenomenon with a long asymptomatic period before the next clinical manifestation which to our knowledge is the first such report.
