A patient affected by lymphoma had ECG signs of ischemia. Two-dimensional (2-D) echocardiography allowed us to diagnose myocardial neoplastic infiltration, while computed tomography suggested pericarditis. On the basis of 2-D echocardiography data, we performed radiotherapy, obtaining complete disappearance of the mass. Both the presence and the disappearance of the mass were detected by 2-D echocardiography and confirmed by direct inspection.
