  • Bronchogenic cysts are speculated to arise from abnormal budding of the foregut tissue during embryogenesis. Around 90% of mediastinal bronchogenic cysts are asymptomatic, and a small percentage of them present with chest pain and dyspnea. Pericardial effusion is one of the manifestations described; however, pericarditis has not been widely reported. We describe a case of a bronchogenic cyst in a…

  • Erdheim-Chester disease (ECD) is a very rare neoplasm of the non-Langerhans cell histiocytes. Pericardial involvement is uncommon, and we aim to review the current knowledge on the epidemiology, clinical manifestations, and management of recurrent pericarditis due to ECD. We also aim to raise awareness of the importance of considering ECD as a differential diagnosis for recurrent pericarditis in …

  • [Cardiac Tamponade as Cardio-Oncologic Emergency Disease]. [Journal Article]
    Gan To Kagaku Ryoho. 2020 Jun; 47(6):881-884.Suzuki T, Tajiri K, Sekine I
  • The causes of cardiac tamponade include neoplastic pericarditis as well as radiation-induced, drug-induced, purulent and iatrogenic pericarditis. Since we can get access to the advanced cancer therapy these days, some of the cardiac tamponade patients can survive longer if we can manage their pericardial effusion well. Here, we will summarize the clinical evidence in cardiac tamponade in patients…
