OLAYA, Pastor  and  CONTRERAS ZUNIGA, Eduardo. Pericardial Cyst in a Heart Transplant Patient: A Case Report. Rev. argent. cardiol. [online]. 2010, vol.78, n.1, pp.69-70. ISSN 1850-3748.

Pericardial cysts are an uncommon congenital anomaly which represents 7% of mediastinal masses. Cysts frequently occur in the right cardiophrenic angle and in the anterior mediastinum. Although most pericardial cysts are asymptomatic, symptoms may develop in unusually located or large cysts. The clinical manifestations depend on the site of location and on the organs involved. We describe the case of a heart transplant patient who developed a pericardial cyst after transplantation.

Keywords : Pericardial Cyst; Mediastinal Masses; Heart Transplantation.
