Heart murmurs in children, whether it is innocent or abnormal, can often be much more dangerous than those in adults. Innocent heart murmurs are quite common in newborns and children, and abnormal heart murmurs are usually caused by congenital heart disease. On an X-ray or MRI, if a child appears to have an enlarged liver or lungs, it could be early symptoms of a severe heart murmur. The buildup of fluids in the organs and tissues of the body can be the result of congestive heart failure, which means the heart is not properly pumping blood throughout the body. Children with these symptoms may have cardiomyopathy, which can be fatal if left untreated.
