Abstract: Pericardial tuberculosis (TB) is a rare but serious manifestation of TB. Post - mortem examination is a valuable tool for studying the pathological features of pericardial TB. In this retrospective study, we aimed to describe the gross and microscopic findings of pericardial TB in a series of cases diagnosed post - mortem. Our results showed that caseating granulomas were the most common finding. This study highlights the importance of considering pericardial TB in the differential diagnosis of pericardial diseases, especially in areas with high TB prevalence.
