Abstract

Localized pericardial effusion leading to cardiac tamponade is seen occasionally in patients after cardiac surgery. This condition may be difficult to diagnose clinically because of unusual presenting symptoms and absence of conventional signs of cardiac tamponade. A case of localized pericardial effusion with presenting symptoms of fever and increasing fatigue is described in this study. The definitive diagnosis was made using transesophageal echocardiography. Surgical drainage of localized effusion resulted in prompt hemodynamic and symptomatic improvement.
