An uncommon cardiac disorder
A 72-year-old immunocompetent patient presented with a refractory pericardial effusion. The MRI was very suggestive for a primary cardiac tumor. The pathologic examination of a transvenous endomyocardial biopsy revealed a diffuse, large B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. As the PET-CT scan and the bone marrow examination showed no extracardiac involvement, the diagnosis of a primary cardiac lymphoma (PCL) was established. The patient was treated with six courses of immunochemo­therapy. The follow-up echocardiography, MRI and PET-CT scan demonstrated a complete remission.
