Pericardial tuberculosis is a life threatening condition and mainly occurs in areas where tuberculosis is endemic, like in the parts of Africa and Asia. A definite microbiological or histopathological diagnosis may not be possible in most cases, therefore, the patients of endemic regions should receive a presumptive diagnosis of tuberculous pericarditis on the basis of clinical presentation, imaging procedures and/or evidence of tuberculosis elsewhere in the body.
