Abstract

The case concerns a female presenting with dyspnoea resulting from recurrent hemopericardium. Pericardiocentesis, coronary angiography, and extensive laboratory and imaging studies did not reveal the underlying etiology of the hemopericardium. Only after repeat and exploratory surgery, diffuse venous pericardial hemorrhages with localized thrombi typical of angiosarcoma were discovered.
