Abstract

Pneumopericardium caused cardiac tamponade in a patient who was struck in the chest by a motor vehicle. Subxiphoid pericardial window and pericardial drainage successfully treated this condition. Diagnosis of this rare form of tamponade depends on clinical examination supported by chest radiographic findings.
