A 77-year-old woman had spontaneous pneumopyopericardium caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae. Chest X-ray revealed a horizontal air-fluid level in the cardiac shadow. Echocardiogram showed characteristic spontaneous contrast echoes in the pericardial effusion. She received pericardiectomy and remained in good condition postoperatively.
