Isolated involvement of the left atrium by metastasis of malignant tumors is extremely rare. Here, we report a rare case of a 6-year-old male child with left atrial metastasis of Wilms' tumor detected in transthoracic 2 D echocardiography 3 years after nephrectomy. Intra atrial extension of Wilms' tumor occurs in only about 1–3% cases and its isolated metastasis to left heart in the absence of vena cava extension is extremely rare, so we present a unique case.
