Cardiac myxoma associated with coronary artery disease is a rare pathology in an elderly patient. Herein we present an 81-year-old woman undergoing simultaneous surgical treatment for left atrial myxoma combined with coronary artery disease. The postoperative course of the patient was uneventful. The initial removal of mass should be performed to prevent systemic embolization of tumor fragments.
