Among primary cardiac tumors, papillary fibroelastoma (PF) represents less than 10% of all such lesions. Of these tumors, 90% are solitary and multiple tumors have rarely been reported. More than 75% of PFs are attached to heart valves, while tumors that originate in the
non-valvular endocardium are rare. We report a case of PF originating from the chordae of the mitral valve with two concomitant aortic valve Lambl’s excrescences.
