Abstract

A case of a 63-year old female with symptomatic advanced right-ventricular (RV) heart failure due to malignant pericardial mesothelioma is presented. Echocardiography revealed that RV failure was due to the tumour-induced compression of the right atrium and not due to metastatic mesothelioma involving pericardial sac.
