Cardiac tamponade due to ovarian carcinoma

Abstract

We describe a patient with ovarian carcinoma who presented with cardiac tamponade with subsequently development of cardiac arrest as the initial symptom. After successful resuscitation and pericardiocentesis our patient was given an intrapericardial infusion of bleomycin and there was no recurrence of pericardial effusion at 14 months follow-up.
