An 18 day old neonate presented with tachypnea. Congenital heart disease was suspected and referred for Pediatric Cardiology opinion. 2D Echocardiography revealed multiple, intra cardiac, highly echogenic, well circumscribed, intramural and intra cavitary rhabdomyomas. There were no systemic manifestations of associated tuberous sclerosis. At present, surgical excision of rhabdomyoma was not indicated and hence child was advised regular follow up with echocardiography evaluation.
