Our study was a prospective study done from November 2010-October 2012, the samples were taken from 40 patients with the diagnosed cases of myocarditis, pericarditis
In summary, we report a case of meningococcal pericarditis
caused by a strain of N.
Sinus tachycardia and low-grade fever are common, while a temperature > 38[degrees]C suggests a specific cause of pericarditis
as a fatal complication after endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration.
is one of the hardest forms of the disease to treat.
The patient was considered to have acute pericarditis
due to the presence of typical chest pain, elevated CRP levels, and minimal pericardial effusion on echo.
Indolent purulent pericarditis
due to viridans streptococcus infection successfully treated by pericardiocentesis and penicillin G.
In the context of previous clinical improvement, negative serology for infectious and autoimmune diseases, and presence of medication--sensitive meningococcus strain, we decided that pericarditis
was immune- mediated and a combination of methylprednisolone and colchicine at 24mg and 0.
in 26 patients with histologically normal pericardial thickness.
PCR confirmed the absence of HV-GcV1 in PF, and HV-GcV2 and HV-CV1 in PFr suggesting multiple infections before each pericarditis
event or a rapid fluctuation in the load of all 3 persisting viruses.
At necropsy, ducklings showed general pallor of skeletal and heart muscles, subcutaneous gelatinous transudates, pericarditis
, ascites, and severe edema and hyperemia of lungs.
Two uncommon cardiovascular etiologies of dyspnea are pericarditis
