[Loculated pericardial effusion leading to functional tricuspid stenosis in a case of rheumatoid arthritis].

Abstract

We describe a case of loculated pericardial effusion, occurring in a women affected by rheumatoid arthritis. Because of its peculiar location, close to the atrioventricular plane, the effusion caused a haemodynamic pattern resembling tricuspid valve stenosis.
