A 33-year-old gentleman was examined because of fatigue and progressive right heart failure. A striking finding in his echocardiogram was intense and slow-moving dense echo contrast in the inferior vena cava (IVC). Cardiac catheterization revealed constrictive pericarditis, and pericardiectomy was performed. Postoperatively spontaneous echo contrast in IVC have resolved. This case helps explain the origin of spontaneous IVC contrast.
