Abstract

Abstract Various types of tumors, including lymphomas, carcinomas, sarcomas, thymic cysts, thymomas and fibrolipomas, have been detected by echocardiography within the pericardial space or adjacent to the parietal pericardium. 1–6 Echocardiographic recognition of compression of cardiac chambers by extracardiac tumor has been reported in several patients. 1–4 In the patient reported herein, who had an immunoblastic sarcoma, abnormalities indicative of right ventricular (RV) outflow tract obstruction on physical examination, imaging echocardiography and Doppler echocardiography disappeared in association with complete remission of tumor during chemotherapy.
