Case Report

ABSTRACT Less than 5% of chest pain in children is cardiac in origin, yet this complaint still represents one of the top reasons children are referred to pediatric cardiologists. This article describes a patient whose cardiac tumor illustrates the challenges of evaluating pediatric chest pain and the Standardized Clinical Assessment and Management Plan algorithm that can help.

At Penn State Hershey in Hershey, Pa., Marie L. Shaner is an associate faculty member in pediatrics, Linda B. Pauliks is an associate professor of pediatrics, Don Leach is senior/lead pediatric cardiology sonographer, John L. Myers is a professor of surgery and pediatrics and director of pediatric cardiovascular surgery, and Dennis Chang is an assistant professor of pediatric cardiology. The authors have disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
