Primary cardiac neoplasms are very rarely encountered, and the most common type of malignant tumours occurring primarily in the heart are sarcomas. These carry a lethal prognosis on account of their late presentation and aggressive spread. They have a high propensity for cerebral metastases. Such cases are exceptionally uncommon, and till date only a few examples are available. Currently, there is no standard protocol for the management of primary cardiac sarcoma with brain metastases.
