ABSTRACT: Two boys presented to our unit between March 2003 and August 2003, required pericardectomy. Thoracoscopic window pericardectomy was done for both these children after a full work up. Using the 30 degree telescope the diagnosis of the pyopericardiumwas confirmed. Thick, yellow and non foul smelling pus measuring 300ml was let out and a window pericardectomy was done taking special care to safeguard the phrenic nerves. Both the children made uneventful recovery. The histopathalogical examination of the excised pericardial tissue revealed non specific inflammation in both cases.
