Persons co-infected with mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) and HIV are at increased risk for developing active tuberculosis. While extrapulmonary tuberculosis is particularly common in patients with AIDS, tuberculous pericarditis is a very uncommon complication of AIDS in the United States. We present a case of tuberculosis involving the pericardium and review the current literature on this topic.
