A 35-year-old female patient presented with a history of recurrent chest pain. On chest x-ray, a regularly shaped lesion at the right cardiophrenic angle was observed. The lesion appeared smaller on a subsequent x-ray. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a cystic lesion that could be differentiated from the pericardium only in its lower part. Thoracoscopy revealed a pericardial diverticulum. Resection of the lesion was performed thoracoscopically, with complete remission of the symptoms.
