A 32-year-old pregnant woman, diagnosed with Behçet’s disease 6 months earlier, presented with recent mild hemoptysis and exertional dyspnea. Transthoracic echocardiography showed an enlarged dysfunctional right ventricle. A large hypoechoic triangular-shaped mass was seen attached to the inner right ventricular wall, filling the cavity. No change in the size of the mass was noted after anticoagulant administration, and right heart failure progressed. Surgery was performed to remove the mass and repair the tricuspid valve. This was a very rare presentation of Behçet’s disease in pregnancy, which resulted in delivery of a completely healthy baby despite corticosteroid pulse therapy and cyclophosphamide. © The Author(s) 2017.
