Hekmat M, Ghaderi H, Tatari H, Arjmand Shabestari A, Mirjafari SA - Iran J Radiol (2016)

Bottom Line: His past medical history was normal.No pericardial effusion was found.After midsternotomy, a huge cyst measuring approximately 13 × 8 × 5 cm in diameters was found on the right side and outside the pericardium that was totally excised.

ABSTRACT
Pericardial cysts are rare lesions. These benign anomalies are located in the middle mediastinum. In this article, we present a 24-year-old man who was referred to the emergency department with dyspnea and persistent cough. In physical exam, no abnormality was found. His past medical history was normal. His trans-thoracic echocardiogram showed an echo-lucent space next to the right atrium at the right cardiophrenic angle. No pericardial effusion was found. The patient underwent surgery. After midsternotomy, a huge cyst measuring approximately 13 × 8 × 5 cm in diameters was found on the right side and outside the pericardium that was totally excised. After 5 days, the patient was discharged and pathologic report confirmed preoperative diagnosis of pericardial cyst. Giant pericardial cysts are not common and in this report, we will review published case reports.

Mentions: Chest X-ray showed a large opacity obscuring the right heart border (Figure 1). His trans-thoracic echocardiogram showed an echo-lucent space next to the right atrium at the right cardiophrenic angle. His echocardiogram was normal, and no pericardial effusion was found. The apical four-chamber view of the transthoracic echocardiogram showed an echolucent space next to the right atrium at the right cardiophrenic angle, consistent with a pericardial cyst. The right and left ventricular chamber size and function were normal, and there was no valvular heart disease
