We report the cases of forty five old year female who was admitted to the Emergency Department
with a clinical picture of tamponnade and heart failure. An emergency echocardiograph showed
an intra and extra-cardiac diffuse tumor with compression of great vessels. Echocardiographic and
CT investigations gave information about an anatomical relations and extensions of this tumor.
Histology confirmed the diagnosis, and allowed classification of the lymphoma in order to decide
on treatment. Transthoracic echocardiography remains the key element in the acute diagnosis but
the MRI and PET scans are used for follow-up.
