A patient with tuberculous pericardial effusion is described who presented with cardiac tamponade. Subsequent to pericardiocentesis, a large echodense intrapericardial mass was observed which disappeared completely with antituberculous chemotherapy. The resolution of the mass suggests that it was a conglomeration of fibrinous exudates deposited in the pericardial cavity. Presence of such exudates should not be considered an indication for surgical intervention.
