Bottom Line: A 27 year-old- lady was evaluated due to recurrent ventricular tachycardia.Pathologic examination confirmed it as mesothelial pericardial cyst.Up to our knowledge it is the first presentation of simple pericardial cyst as ventricular a tachycardia.

ABSTRACT
A 27 year-old- lady was evaluated due to recurrent ventricular tachycardia. After performing echocardiography and cardiac MRI, she was found to have large pericardial cyst. Pathologic examination confirmed it as mesothelial pericardial cyst. Up to our knowledge it is the first presentation of simple pericardial cyst as ventricular a tachycardia.

A-ECG shows wide QRS complex tachycardia confirmed during EP study as VT. B. Transthoracic echocardiography. Cyst (C) is obvious in atrioventricular groove relative to left atrium (LA) and left ventricle (LV).

Figure 1: A-ECG shows wide QRS complex tachycardia confirmed during EP study as VT. B. Transthoracic echocardiography. Cyst (C) is obvious in atrioventricular groove relative to left atrium (LA) and left ventricle (LV).

Mentions: A 27 year-old lady was evaluated due to repeated episodes of ventricular tachycardia (Figure 1A). She was referred for implantation of intracardiac cardiovertor-defibrillator. Transthoracic echocardiography showed a large cystic structure adjacent to posterior interventricular groove (Figure 1B). Cardiac MRI showed an encapsulated cyst in the cardiac crux containing high signal fluid with evidence of fibrosis in the adjacent myocardium (Figure 2A). The patient underwent surgery that showed a 5 x 4 cm cyst in the pericardium with adhesion to the underlying myocardium (Figure 2B). Pathologic examination showed the cyst to be mesothelial pericardial cyst.
