Four cases of left atrial myxoma were diagnosed pre-operatively by echocardiography. All cases showed characteristic echocardio­graphic features of variegated shadows behind the mitral valve in diastole and within the left atrium in systole. In two cases the my­xomas were surgically removed and confirmed on histology. In one case the post-operative echocardiogram showed complete dis­appearance of the abnormal shadows. Echocardiography is the most reliable method today for the diagnosis of a myxoma.
