Laboratory findings consistent with cardiac myxoma include anemia, leukocytosis, and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate. However, these results are generally non-diagnostic.

Laboratory Findings

The clinical utility of laboratory tests in the diagnosis of cardiac myxoma remains nonspecific. Laboratory findings consistent with cardiac myxoma include anemia, leukocytosis and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate.[1]

Blood tests

There is no specific blood test for the diagnosis of cardiac myxoma. However, constitutional symptoms are associated with the following cell blood count (CBC) findings:[2]
