The case of a 83-year-old man is reported, who was admitted to "Dr. Joaquín Castillo Duany" Teaching Clinical Surgical Hospital in Santiago de Cuba due to cerebrovascular disease and atrial fibrillation, so that an embolic cardiovascular source was suspected. The echocardiogram showed a T-type image in the right atrium that did not explain the patient's clinical pattern, but it was noticed that it disappeared after treatment, which led to the description of this case for publication.

Key words: elderly, cardiac mass, right atrium, cerebrovascular disease, atrial fibrillation.
