Abstract

Pericardial tuberculosis (TB) is rare, but has particularly severe complications and a high mortality rate when not treated. Prompt treatment of pericardial TB is important and can be life-saving. We report a 13-year-old girl with massive pericardial effusion and negative workup for TB, who was empirically treated with an excellent response. � 2016 Production and hosting by Elsevier Ltd. on behalf of Asian African Society for Mycobacteriology.
