A 30-year-old patient was admitted to cardiology because of a worsening exercise tolerance, with night sweats and chest pain. Echocardiography showed pericardial fluid and additional pathological masses invading left atrium, with high probability of intracardiac position. No vegetations were visualized. The patient underwent computed tomography of the chest, which showed the enlargement of mediastinal lymph nodes. Detailed oncological assessment was initiated, leading to definitive diagnosis of Hodgkin's lymphoma. The patient received chemotherapy and peripheral-blood progenitor cells transplantation. Control positron emission tomography showed a complete regression of neoplasm, and the patient is uneventful over 30-month follow-up.
