Is acute idiopathic pericarditis associated with recent upper respiratory tract infection or gastroenteritis? A case-control study.

Rey F, Delhumeau-Cartier C, Meyer P, Genne D - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Patients who were hospitalised with a first diagnosis of AIP were retrospectively compared with a control group of patients admitted with deep vein thrombosis (DVT), matched by gender and age.Primary and secondary care level; one hospital serving a population of about 170,000.Only patients with a complete review of systems on the admission note were included in the study.

BMJOPEN2015009141F2: Clinical findings in the acute idiopathic pericarditis group (GE, gastroenteritis; URTI, upper respiratory tract infection).

Mentions: With three exceptions, all patients with AIP had a typical chest pain (95.6%), 18 (39.1%) had a pericardial effusion, 15 (34.1%) had typical ECG changes, 1 (2.2%) had a pericardial friction rub, 12 (27.3%) had elevated troponin I and 22 (64.7%) had high CRP (figure 2). Patients with elevated troponin I had a history of recent URTI or GE in 6 (50%) cases. In patients with a pericardial effusion, 16 (88.9%) had a mild or moderate effusion (≤20 mm at end-diastole on echocardiography) and 2 (1.1%) had a severe effusion with tamponade. A history of recent URTI or GE was present in 5 (27.8%) patients with a pericardial effusion.
