Abstract: Cardiovascular involvements are frequent in Beh?et's disease (BD), cardiac involvement is rare, affecting 1 to 6% of patients with BD. We report a case of a 19-year-old man, with a recent diagnosis of a BD, who presented with hemoptysis. An intra-right atrial thrombosis was diagnosed, and the patient was treated by medical treatment with a good initial result. 5 months later, he presented a recurrence of the intracdiac mass witch increase on volume and became very mobile. The CT-scan revealed a pulmonary embolism. He was operated under cardiopulmonary bypass and the mass was excised successfully. The postoperative course was favorable without any recurrence during 3 months follow-up.
