Abstract

A 49-year-old woman developed a chronic obstruction of the superior vena cava (SVC) as a complication of mediastinal tuberculosis. Echocardiography findings are presented along with the cavography. Symptoms disappeared after stenting the fibrosed SVC. Transesophageal echocardiogram findings led to the condition's final resolution.
