A clinical case was analyzed where constrictive pericarditis was evident only as recurrent edema of low extremities for two years. Based on results of transesophageal EchoCG (TE EchoCG) congenital heart disease was diagnosed – dextrocardia of a triatrial heart (RTH) complicated with chronic right ventricular HF. Multislice spiral computed tomography (MSCT) detected constrictive pericarditis with massive pericardial calcification (up to 5 mm). Subtotal pericardectomy was performed for this female patient.
