A case of 47-year-old female who underwent the surgery for the bilateral atrial myxoma two times was reported. At the first operation both tumors were attached to the same level of the atrial septum and were removed simultaneously followed by the resection of the left atrial wall. Six months later, she complained of dyspnea and easy fatigability for the recurrence of the tumor. She was operated again for the removal of the tumor. But she died of the re-recurrence of the tumor 4 months after the second operation.
