Abstract

We report the findings in a patient with constrictive pericarditis who had ECGs resembling right ventricular hypertrophy without right ventricular pressure overload, and we provide a possible explanation for the cause of this abnormality. Right ventriculography demonstrated a dilated and hyperkinetic outflow tract and compressed free wall with calcified pericardium. The derangement of the configuration of the right ventricle was considered to the genesis of this electrocardiographic abnormality.
