The pericardial lipomas are rare benign cardiac tumors. The clinical presentation of these cardiac neoplasms varies according to the site of growth. We describe here a case of massive intrapericardial lipoma leading to severe dyspnea, its diagnostic work up and briefly review the existing literature of this uncommon disorder. The patient underwent successful surgical resection of the tumor with complete alleviation of the symptoms. /locate /ihj i n d i a n h e a r t j o u r n a l 6 5 ( 2 0 1 3 ) 1 0 4 e1 0 6
