The prevalence of pericardial effusion and its clinical significance is not well understood in COVID-19 patients. We report two cases of COVID-19-related pericardial effusion complicated by intrapericardial clot formation. The final outcome was favorable, but intrapericardial clot remained mostly unchanged at 6-month follow-up. The treatment approach and the long-term consequences are still unclear. We propose a review of this particular cardiovascular complication in COVID-19 patients.
