Pericarditis is an inflammatory heart disease, which may be idiopathic or secondary to autoimmune or auto-inflammatory diseases and often leads to severe or life-threatening complications. Colchicine and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs represent the mainstay of treatment, whereas use of corticosteroids is associated with recurrence of disease flares. While effective and safe anti-inflammatory therapies remain an unmet clinical need, emerging clinical and experimental evidence points at a promising role of inhibition of the pro-inflammatory cytokine interleukin-1 (IL-1)...

REVIEW
Aldo L Schenone, Venu Menon
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This is an in-depth review on the mechanism of action, clinical utility, and drug-drug interactions of colchicine in the management of pericardial disease. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent evidence about therapeutic targets on pericarditis has demonstrated that NALP3 inflammasome blockade is the cornerstone in the clinical benefits of colchicine. Such benefits extend from acute and recurrent pericarditis to transient constriction and post-pericardiotomy syndrome...

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to evaluate the prognostic value of FDG pericardial uptake using FDG-PET/CT in patients admitted for acute pericarditis with pericardial effusion. METHODS: In this monocentric retrospective cohort study, all patients admitted for idiopathic acute pericarditis with pericardial effusion from January 2009 to December 2016 who underwent a FDG-PET/CT at diagnosis were considered. Pericardial FDG uptake was measured by generating a volume of interest to calculate the maximal standardized uptake value...

We report a rare case of a mediastinal malignant granular cell tumor in a 41-year-old man presenting with dyspnea, retrosternal chest pain, and recurrent pericardial effusion under treatment with corticosteroids. Because of recurrent episodes, further investigations with chest MRI and F-FDG PET/CT revealed a large infiltrating and strongly hypermetabolic mass in the mediastinum with pericarditis. Histopathology and immunohistochemical analysis showed large cells with greater pleomorphism and eosinophilic granular cytoplasm with positive staining for S100 protein and CD68 as well as high Ki67 proliferative index (15%) confirming the diagnosis of a malignant granular cell tumor...

BACKGROUND: Post tubercular constrictive pericarditis is prevalent pericardial disease in developing countries. Pericardiectomy is the treatment of choice but considered a procedure of high morbidity and mortality. METHODS: From January 2003 to December 2013 we performed 130 pericardiectomies. Mean age was 22.95±12.55 years with 92 (71%) males. All patients were symptomatic; 118 (91%) were in NYHA class III / IV. Almost all patients were diagnosed to be of tubercular origin; 14 (11 %) histopathologically proven, 77 (59%) with definitive history while 39 (30%) suspected to be of tubercular origin and 91 (70%) received prior antitubercular treatment...

A subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (S-ICD) is an alternative device for prevention of sudden cardiac death, without any leads within the heart. Patients implanted with any type of ICD may need catheter ablation of ventricular tachycardia (VT) to reduce the overall arrhythmia burden (e.g., recurrent monomorphic VT) and lower the incidence of painful shocks induced by the device. Late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) MRI is a useful pre-test for guiding VT ablation, because it can be used to map myocardial scar and produce better outcomes...

A 64-year-old woman complaining of progressive dyspnea was admitted with recurrence of massive pericardial effusion. The patient had been diagnosed with radiation pericarditis based on a previous case of pericardiocentesis. To make a diagnosis and improve her symptoms, imaging examinations and pericardial fenestration were performed. Because of difficulty making a diagnosis, after some months, pericardiotomy and incision of the epicardium were performed. The patient was ultimately diagnosed with primary malignant pericardial mesothelioma of the epithelioid type...

BACKGROUND: Aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (A/NSAIDs) are the mainstay treatments for of acute pericarditis. We sought to identify factors predicting A/NSAIDs failure and switch to corticosteroid treatment (STCT) as well as the impact of STCT on pericarditis recurrence. METHODS: We enrolled 148 patients with acute pericarditis receiving A/NSAID (n=110) or corticosteroids (n=38) as first line treatment according to clinical indications. In case of poor response to A/NSAIDs (n=37), STCT was performed and factors contributing to such failure were explored...

Purulent pericarditis is a rare entity, defined as the presence of neutrophilic pericardial effusion which is infected by a bacterial, fungus or parasite agent. The diagnosis can be challenging, especially if patients have taken previous antibiotic therapy; on the other hand the recognition of this pathology is often made late, with the onset of severe symptoms or signs of cardiac tamponade or even only at the autopsy. The authors describe the case of a 82-year-old woman with history of extensive laceration of the right lower limb from a dog bite in July 2016, admitted to the Cardiology Department one month later for Acute Pericarditis...

Behçet's disease is an inflammatory disease, the origin of which still remains unclear, and it has multiple manifestations , one of them being thrombosis. In this report, we describe the case of a 24-year-old Moroccan patient who presented with headache persisting for more than 2 weeks, which was found to be caused by cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. His medical history of recurrent oral and genital ulcerations, epididymitis and one episode of pericarditis led to the diagnosis of Behçet's disease. We could observe an almost complete relief of symptoms with colchicine therapy, and anticoagulation with warfarin was started for secondary prevention of thrombosis...

BACKGROUND Melioidosis is a rare tropical bacterial infection caused by the Gram-negative soil saprophyte, Burkholderia pseudomallei. Melioidosis can mimic a variety of diseases due to its varied presentation, and unless it is treated rapidly, it can be fatal.  A rare case of melioidosis, with pericarditis and pericardial effusion, is described, which demonstrates the value of early diagnosis with echocardiography and pericardiocentesis. CASE REPORT A 38-year-old native (Iban) East Malaysian man presented with shortness of breath and tachycardia...

RATIONALE: Purulent pericarditis is a rare and usually fatal disease. Immunodeficiency state and preexisting pericardial effusion can predispose patients to infections. However, we are not aware of similar cases in patients with adult-onset Still's disease (AOSD). In addition, it is seldom caused by Salmonella bacteria. PATIENT CONCERNS: We report a 30-year-old woman with dyspnea on exertion and epigastric fullness. She was newly diagnosed with AOSD 4 months previously and medicated with prednisolone...

Colchicine has been longstanding and widely used for the treatment of acute gout flares and prevention of gout relapses. Its use has been extended to a series of autoinflammatory diseases, such as familial Mediterranean fever and more recently to periodic fever with aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis and adenitis, Behcet's disease and idiopathic recurrent acute pericarditis. In this review, we summarize current indications of colchicine use, discuss its pharmacokinetics and mechanism of action and examine its use in the treatment of autoinflammatory diseases...
