Clinical and echocardiographic features of a patient with extensive metastasis to the pericardium and myocardium are presented. Echocardiography revealed pericardial effusion, markedly thickened pericardium, and myocardium with increased echogenicity. These findings were subsequently confirmed during surgery and autopsy, which revealed marked tumor encasement of the heart and pericardial myocardial infiltration.
