Papillary fibroelastomas are rare benign tumours that are seldom diagnosed during life. We report three cases of this tumour; two patients had recurrent embolic events, and one was diagnosed incidentally. Although rare, these tumours are a potentially treatable cause of cardiac emboli. Prompt identification allows excision, which generally is curative.
