Abstract

IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a chronic inflammatory mediated by an immune response characterized by dense lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate, IgG4 positive plasmocytes in the affected tissue. In this case, we describe a patient who presented pericarditis with hemodynamic instability. Reporting of atypical presentations is necessary for broadening clinical recognition of similar cases.
