A patient with a history of adrenocortical carcinoma presented with massive pericardial effusion and a giant pericardial mass. Death resulted from cardiac tamponade. At autopsy a large necrotic mass was histologically similar to the original adrenocortical carcinoma. Wepresent this case and review the literature on metastatic pericardial disease.
