Pericardial cyst with right ventricular compression

Julius Chacha Mwita, Peter Chipeta, Reuben Mutagaywa, Belson Rugwizangoga, Elijah Ussiri

Abstract


Pericardial cysts are infrequent and benign mediastinal lesions. While most pericardial cysts are asymptomatic, some patients may present with compression symptoms. We present the case of a 22-year-old man who presented with a right pericardial cyst that caused compression of the right ventricle.
