Abstract

An immunocompetent migrant with chest pain was admitted to an Italian hospital. CT scan showed a left pectoral abscess and osteomyelitis of the sternum. The infection spread into the anterior mediastinum near to the pericardium and the heart, where an atrial mass was confirmed by echocardiography. Disseminated tuberculosis was diagnosed.
