Transient severe biventricular systolic dysfunction is a rare phenomenon postpericardiocentesis. Here, the authors report the clinical scenario of a young male who presented with pericardial tamponade that was tuberculous in origin. Soon postpericardiocentesis, he had biventricular dysfunction that recovered spontaneously. The authors discuss the clinical presentation, investigations and pathogenesis of this complication.
