Pericardial Mesothelioma

Pericardial mesothelioma is much less common than pleural mesothelioma. In fact there are only about 150 cases ever reported in the medical literature. It affects the section of the mesothelium called the pericardium (the mesothelial lining of the heart).

Location and Symptoms

Pericardial mesothelioma develops in the pericardium, a fluid-filled lining that surrounds and protects the heart. It is one of the rarest forms of mesothelioma and is generally seen only in patients who have had an extended amount of exposure to asbestos.

Associated symptoms of this disease include:

  • Chest pain
  • Persistent coughing
  • Heart palpitations or irregular heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath, difficulty breathing normally
  • Fever/night sweats

Pericardial Mesothelioma Diagnosis

Pericardial mesothelioma can occur at any age, but people in the fourth to seventh decades of life are most likely to be afflicted, and there is a 2:1 male to female ratio.

Patients generally present with a pericardial effusion, congestive heart failure, an anterior mediastinal mass, or tamponade. Diagnosis can be difficult given the nonspecific presentation, and chest radiography may demonstrate only an enlarged cardiac silhouette.

Echocardiography can reveal evidence of an effusion, thickening of the pericardium, or mass involvement of the myocardium. CT scanning or MRI can show a thickened pericardium and may help determine invasion into myocardium.

Diagnosed with Pericardial Mesothelioma?

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with pericardial mesothelioma, you and your family may be entitled to compensation.
