Abstract

Background: A 54-year-old patient presented with dyspnea, palpitation, a swollen, dysfunctional edematous left leg and discomfort. Medical history revealed chronic, a-specific leftsided thoracic pain, corticosteroid use because of Morbus Sjogren and a recent surgical lumbar hernia repair.
Retrospectively, follow-up conventional imaging showed a progressive right-sided cardiac enlargement, left pleural effusion and a prominent superior mediastinum.
