    We excluded patients with pericardial tamponade due to a small amount of effusion or to localized pericardial effusion.[] ECG may show ST elevation in most leads without reciprocal ST depression, typical of pericardial effusion. Echocardiography shows pericardial effusion.[] The pericardial effusion cleared with short-term therapy with corticosteroids and the prolonged use of indomethacin.[]
