Cardiac tamponade as a presentation of mucoepidermoid bronchogenic carcinoma.

We report a young patient who had massive pericardial effusion and tamponade diagnosed clinically and by echocardiography as the presenting manifestation of underlying malignancy. Pericardial and lymphnode biopsy revealed features of mucoepidermoid carcinoma and bronchoscopy localised the primary to be in the left main bronchus.
