Abstract

Malignant pericardial effusion and tamponade are rarely seen complications of epithelial ovarian cancer. With the use of multiagent chemotherapy, these complications may be seen more frequently in the future. Therapy should be individualized, as long-term survival may be possible if the systemic manifestations of the cancer can be controlled.
