PMID:  1580157     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A five year old girl with cardiac tamponade due to purulent pericarditis caused by Staphylococcus aureus was treated successfully with a combination therapy of appropriate antibiotics and surgical open drainage. Right atrial collapse was observed during early systole using two-dimensional echocardiography. This case illustrated the usefulness of echocardiography for early detection and treatment of cardiac tamponade in pediatric patients.
