Diffuse infiltrative cardiac tuberculosis.

Gulati GS, Kothari SS - Ann Pediatr Cardiol (2011)

Bottom Line: We present the cardiac magnetic resonance images of an unusual form of cardiac tuberculosis.Nodular masses in a sheet-like distribution were seen to infiltrate the outer myocardium and pericardium along most of the cardiac chambers.The lesions showed significant resolution on antitubercular therapy.

ABSTRACT
We present the cardiac magnetic resonance images of an unusual form of cardiac tuberculosis. Nodular masses in a sheet-like distribution were seen to infiltrate the outer myocardium and pericardium along most of the cardiac chambers. The lesions showed significant resolution on antitubercular therapy.

Figure 4: Six months after initiation of antitubercular therapy. All the lesions show significant reduction in size (legends as in Figure 3)

Mentions: Six months after the antitubercular treatment, the patient had clinical signs of mild constrictive pericarditis. A repeat CMR showed significant reduction in size of all the lesions, with only mild residual thickening at the previous sites of involvement [Figure 4].
