Pericardial Tamponade in a Patient With Treated Myxedema

Pericardial Tamponade in a Patient With Treated Myxedema Abstract • Pericardial tamponade developed in a patient with hypothyroidism and a pericardial effusion after she had been successfully treated with levothyroxine sodium.

Abstract

Abstract • Pericardial tamponade developed in a patient with hypothyroidism and a pericardial effusion after she had been successfully treated with levothyroxine sodium. Refractory pericardial effusion is an unusual complication of treated myxedema. A possible mechanism for its occurrence is presented. (Arch Intern Med 1983;143:1983-1984) References 1.
