Abstract

Primary Malignant Cardiac Tumours (PMCTs) of the heart and pericardium are extremely rare. The incidence rate of both malignant and benign primary tumours is 0.02%, however only one quarter of these are malignant. The reason why these specific malignancies are so uncommon is not yet well understood. This review aims to determine why the heart and pericardium are such inhospitable hosts to PMCTs.
