We report an illustrated case of a 61-year-old woman with multiple atrial myxomas and cutaneous hyperpigmentation as part of the Carney complex. The case is notable for an unusually late presentation in life and a strong family history of atrial myxomas and sudden death. The importance of regular life-long echocardiographic screening and surveillance in all family members of affected cases is emphasized.
