Pericardial mesothelioma is a rare form of pericardial tumor. The invasive investigations such as biopsy make the diagnosis. Non-invasive imaging techniques provide valuable information about its diagnosis and its clinical impact. We report here the results of magnetic resonance imaging of pericardial mesothelioma in a 65-year-old woman. The originality and purpose of this case is to illustrate the additional value of magnetic resonance imaging that should be systematically performed when assessing this pathology.
