Right‐sided cardiac malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) is extremely rare, and to the authors' knowledge only three cases have been reported. In this study, a case of MFH in the right ventricle, the septum, and the pulmonary valves and artery in a 47 year old male is described. The tumor showed typical pathological features of MFH, such as cellular pleo‐morphism, storiform pattern and abundant mitoses. Immu‐nohistochemical and electron microscopical findings were compatible with MFH, and excluded the possibility of leio‐myosarcoma and angiosarcoma. Whole body examination, including Gallium scintigram, localized the primary site to the heart. The details of this case are presented with a review of the reported cases of cardiac MFH.
