Epipericardial fat necrosis is an unusual clinical condition of unknown etiology first reported in the literature in 1957. It presents as an acute onset of chest pain and a well-defined juxtacardiac mass. Computed tomographic findings of this condition demonstrate a fat-attenuation mass that resolves over time. We present a case of a 48-year-old man who presented with epipericardial fat necrosis followed over time with serial computed tomographic scans documenting resolution.
