Congenital absence of the pericardium is not a common condition in daily practice. There are no obvious and clear symptoms. This condition, which is diagnosed incidentally, may cause some complications when not diagnosed. Therefore, imaging techniques, such as echocardiography, are essential. In this article, we present a rare case of pericardial agenesis. (NCI-2019-0285.R2)

Keywords: Congenital, pericardial agenesis; pericardium.
