Abstract

Pericardial cysts are rareand benign lesions of the heart. They are usually asymptomatic and incidentally diagnosed on chest X-ray. Most are located at the right cardiophrenic angle. Life- -threatening complications may be infrequently encountered. We report the case of a 54 year- -old male with acute coronary syndrome and a pericardial cyst in an unusual localization.
