We present a patient with cardiac involvement by a metastatic high-grade pleomorphic sarcoma. The tumor metastasized to the endocardium of the left ventricle as well as the lungs, adrenal glands, and thoracolumbar spine. The sarcoma obstructed the left ventricular outflow tract. Approximately 5 months after diagnosis, despite chemotherapy, our patient died suddenly. The exact cause of death is unknown, but presumably cardiac in origin
