Abstract

A rare case of intracardiac injury with a sewing needle causing constrictive pericarditis is reported. A 72-year-old woman was admitted with edema of the face and legs. A chest radiogram showed a needle-shaped metallic image overlying the cardiac silhouette. Computed tomography revealed the needle was located in the left ventricular myocardium, and also showed a thickened pericardium. Surgical removal of the needle and pericardectomy were performed simultaneously.
