Abstract

A 53 year old asymptomatic man presented with a primary pericardial mesothelioma masquerading as a benign pericardial effusion. Although M-mode echocardiography showed an echo-free space, two-dimensional echocardiography and thoracic computed tomography demonstrated that the suspected effusion was caused by a mass surrounding the heart. Newer noninvasive techniques can be valuable for the early detection of pericardial tumor.
