Background: Pericardial disorders are a common cause of heart disease, and the most common cause of pericarditis in developing countries is tuberculous (TB) pericarditis. It has been shown that prednisolone added to standard anti-TB therapy leads to a lower rate of constrictive pericarditis. We conducted a pilot study to evaluate the effect of adjunctive prednisolone treatment on the concentration of inflammatory markers in pericardial tuberculosis, in order to inform immunological mechanisms at the disease site...

HISTORY AND CLINICIAL FINDINGS:  We elaborate a case of a 48-year old patient of indian descent who presented with shortness of breath, lower extremity edema and ascites in our emergency unit.One year beforehand tuberculous pleuritis was diagnosed and treated in accordance with guidelines. INVESTIGATIONS:  CT-Scan of the heart revealed a pericardial thickening with calcifications. Echocardiographic examination and invasive pressure measurement did not provide any clear evidence of pericarditis constrictiva...

SETTING: Tuberculosis (TB) is the most common cause of pericarditis worldwide and carries a high mortality, even with effective anti-tuberculosis treatment. In the light of a randomized control trial in 2014, the American Thoracic Society and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/Infectious Diseases Society of America recently revised their recommendations against the routine use of adjunctive corticosteroids. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the strength of evidence that resulted in this reversal of the guideline recommendations on the use of adjunctive corticosteroids in TB pericarditis by a meta-analysis, followed by a sensitivity analysis...

Background: Several studies have investigated the diagnostic accuracy of tests of pericardial effusion interferon-gamma for tuberculous pericarditis in patients with pericardial effusion, but the results have varied. The aim of this study was to investigate the diagnostic accuracy of interferon-gamma for tuberculous pericarditis using meta-analysis. Methods: The PubMed and EMBASE databases were searched to identify studies investigating the diagnostic accuracy of tests for interferon-gamma in pericardial effusion for tuberculous pericarditis...

INTRODUCTION: Tuberculosis miliary is a severe and rare form of tuberculosis. It is often due to a haematogenous spread of the bacillus of Koch and represents less than 2 % of tuberculosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study of 81 cases of tuberculous miliary collected at the Department of respiratory diseases of the Ibn Rochd university hospital in Casablanca between September 2003 and November 2016. RESULTS: A female predominance was noted with 58 % of the cases...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to assess the diagnostic performance of Xpert MTB/RIF for tuberculous pericarditis (TBP) using pericardial tissues. METHODS: The study involved 30 patients admitted with suspected TBP from January-December 2016; three patients were later excluded. The interferon-γ release assay (T-SPOT.TB) and the Xpert MTB/RIF test were performed using peripheral blood and pericardial tissues, respectively. TBP was confirmed using pericardial histopathology and a composite reference standard (CRS)...

A 63-year-old woman had persistent bloody pericardial effusion. Tuberculous pericarditis was initially suspected, but empirical antituberculosis therapy was futile. FDG PET/CT study revealed abnormal FDG activity in multiple parts of the pericardium, especially along with aorta and main pulmonary artery, and in the left atrium. However, there was no abnormal activity in other parts of the body. Histopathologic examination revealed primary pericardial angiosarcoma.

We report the first case of Nocardia beijingensis pericarditis in a 32-year-old HIV-infected patient. He presented with cardiac tamponade after failing to respond to treatment for smear-negative pulmonary and pericardial tuberculosis (TB). The pericardial fluid was examined several times before it eventually revealed filamentous branching organisms in Gram and modified acid-fast bacilli stain. The culture grew Nocardia spp. and was identified by 16s rRNA sequencing as N. beijingensis. Eight previously reported cases of Nocardia pericarditis in HIV-infected patients were caused by Nocardia asteroides...

Pericardial diseases have changed their epidemiology in the past few years. With the aging population and decreasing incidence of communicable diseases, the causes of pericardial diseases have significantly changed from infectious and malignant to postradiation and cardiac surgery causes. Despite that, pericardial diseases remain difficult to diagnose. The accurate and timely diagnosis of these diseases is essential to avoid the late sequela of pericardial constriction and pericardial cirrhosis. Echocardiography remains the first test of choice for the assessment of patients with suspected pericardial diseases...

Viral pericarditis is the most common cause of acute pericarditis and it is typically responsive to aspirin or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Tuberculous pericarditis is common in immunocompromised patients or in immunocompetent patients in endemic areas. The diagnosis of tuberculous pericarditis usually requires a multidisciplinary approach, and presumptive treatment should be started for people with suspected infections living in endemic areas. Antituberculous treatment along with corticosteroid therapy can reduce complications from constrictive pericarditis...

REVIEW

Effusive-constrictive pericarditis (ECP) corresponds to the coexistence of a hemodynamically significant pericardial effusion and decreased pericardial compliance. The hallmark of ECP is the persistence of elevated right atrial pressure postpericardiocentesis. The prevalence of ECP seems higher in tuberculous pericarditis and lower in idiopathic cases. The diagnosis of ECP is traditionally based on invasive hemodynamics but the presence of echocardiographic features of constrictive pericarditis post-pericardiocentesisis can also identify ECP...

BACKGROUND: Tuberculous pericarditis can impair the heart's function and cause death; long term, it can cause the membrane to fibrose and constrict causing heart failure. In addition to antituberculous chemotherapy, treatments include corticosteroids, drainage, and surgery. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of treatments for tuberculous pericarditis. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the Cochrane Infectious Diseases Group Specialized Register (27 March 2017); the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), published in the Cochrane Library (2017, Issue 2); MEDLINE (1966 to 27 March 2017); Embase (1974 to 27 March 2017); and LILACS (1982 to 27 March 2017)...

INTRODUCTION: Localized pericardial constriction is a rare form of constrictive pericarditis CP. Depending on the CP location, clinical presentation may be variable, including compression and obstruction of right ventricular inflow tract(RVIT), coronary obstruction, or pulmonary stenosis. CASE PRESENTATION: A 72-year-old man presented a 2-year history of dyspnea and atrial fibrillation. A contrast enhanced angio computerized tomography clearly demonstrated a large spherical mass about 11×9×4cm in the anterior pericardium, presenting as a mediastinal tumor causing compression and obstruction of the RVIT...

Pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) associated with tuberculous pericarditis after lung transplantation is a very rare entity. Here we report a unique case of cardiac tamponade due to tuberculous pericarditis, in a patient 4 months after single right lung transplantation, the patient underwent a subxyphoid pericardial window. The pericardial effusion analysis showed exudate effusion with high level of lymphocyte concentration. Both patient and donor didn't have history of TB or TB Exposure.

SETTING: Many drugs with potential QT prolongation effects (QT drugs) have already been used for decades in patients with multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) or non-tuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) disease, but without a common consensus. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of QT drugs on cardiac events in patients with MDR-TB or NTM disease. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 373 patients (mean age: 56.4 years) with MDR-TB or NTM disease treated for >1 month with clofazimine (CFZ), moxifloxacin (MFX), bedaquiline (BDQ), delamanid (DLM) or macrolides (clarithromycin or azithromycin)...
