Primary coronary sinus tumors are extremely rare. Herein, we present a case of a pregnant woman with a primary myxoma in the coronary sinus (CS), which was diagnosed by echocardiography and computed tomography. We reviewed the literature and found two other primary CS tumors. We summarized the gender, ages, symptoms, diagnostic methods, associated anomalies, treatments, histologic findings, and outcomes of the 3 cases. Dyspnea was a common symptom of all 3 patients. Diagnostic methods included echocardiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and coronary angiography. Associated anomalies included coronary artery fistulas, coronary sinus orifice atresia with persistent left superior vena cava, intra-cardiac invasion, and pericardial effusion. The 3 histologic types of primary CS tumor were haemangioma, lymphoma, and myxoma. The 3 patients received proper treatment and had good therapeutic outcomes.
