Case Study of the Week: Dr Wharton’s Echo Case: Problem Pill or Is There a Pill for This Problem?

Here is a great case from Dr. Wharton on Medscape of a 45 year old patient with hyperlipidemia (high LDL-C and high triglycerides) taking a high-potency statin who presents with pericardial effusion and signs of tamponade.

What should be done next?
a) CT/MRI
b) Pericardiocentesis
c) Liver Biopsy
d) Blood test
