  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A case of congenital partial absence of the left pleuropericardium was reported. This patient had characteristic findings of jugular venous phlebogram which showed obliterated x descent, s wave upon the v wave ascent and relative deep y descent. We concluded that absence of the pericardium resulted in abnormal jugular phlebo-gram which mimiced those seen in cases after pericardiotomy and pointed out the clinical useful-ness of jugular venous tracing in this disease.
