Pericardial cyst is a benign congenital malformation, with uncommon incidence of approximately 1 in 100 000. It accounts for 7% of all mediastinal masses and is rarely associated with complications. Prompt discrimination of this benign lesion from metastasis in a patient with malignancy is of paramount significance in deciding exact line of management.
