Abstract

A pericardial cyst is, according to the definition, a collection of fluid or blood in the pericardial space (inside the pericardial sac) around the heart. New visualization methods can help in the non-invasive diagnosis of pericardial cysts. Based on a presented case, we conclude that multi-slice computed tomography can have a great impact on the detection of pericardium diseases such as a pericardial cyst.
