Two female patients presenting with shortness of breath on routine activity, were found to have severe iron deficiency anemia and moderate transudative pericardial effusion. With the correction of iron deficiency anemia, pericardial effusion disappeared in both patients. Moderate pericardial effusion occurring with severe anemia has not been described in the literature.
