This is a case report of a patient who presented clinically with features of mitral valve prolapse. Echocardiography revealed, in addition to a systolic mitral valve prolapse, variegated shadows be­hind the anterior mitral leaflet characteristic of a myxoma. At sur­gery the prolapse of the posterior mitral leaflet was confirmed, but no myxoma was present. This case represents a rare false positive echocardiogram suggesting a myxoma in a patient with prolapsed mitral valve.
