Abstract

Cholesterol pericarditis is an extremely rare type of pericarditis characterized by a continuous pericardial effusion containing high amounts of cholesterol crystals. This case report of a 51-year-old male with syncopal episodes and a massive, cholesterol-rich pericardial effusion highlights the interdisciplinary approach and rationale in treating this rare condition of largely unknown pathogenesis.
