Cardiac tumors are rare in children, having a maximum reported incidence of 0.027% in prenatal diagnosis, increasing the incidence in necropsy diagnosis; rhabdomyomas are the most frequent cardiac tumors, some cases are associated with tuberous sclerosis. We present the report of two cases in our unit that were diagnosed prenatal with follow-up after birth and one of them was associated with tuberous sclerosis. Both cases were admitted in a third level center, uncomplicated, without requiring surgical treatment, and could be discharged.
