We report a case of locally constrictive pericarditis and epicarditis, which did not indicate typical findings of CT and MRI, late after open-heart surgery. A 74-year-old man with a history of coronary artery bypass grafting was transferred to our hospital for treatment of heart failure. Transthoracic echocardiography, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a cystic lesion that compressed the right ventricle and main pulmonary artery without enhancement. However, the pericardial hypertrophy was not clear...

Systemic lupus erythematosus can be idiopathic or drug-induced. Although a number of beta-blockers have been reported to induce a lupus-like syndrome, to the best of our knowledge, no such case has been described following celiprolol therapy. We diagnosed a lupus-like syndrome in a 67-year-old female patient who developed febrile polyarthritis, percarditis, antinuclear and anti-histone antibodies after taking celiprolol for 2 years. Despite drug withdrawal, prolonged corticotherapy was needed to obtain clinical and biological remission...

A 31-year-old Chinese man presented with complaint of acute chest pain. 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) showed sinus rhythm, with widespread upward concave ST segment elevations. The ECG changes along with a history of acute chest pain in a young man with minimal coronary risk factors are suggestive of acute pericarditis. He subsequently developed a pericardial effusion. Diagnosis, treatment and complications of acute percarditis are discussed.

In 1980, the first Moroccan hemodialysis center was founded in Casablanca. The number of centers has been increasing since then, to reach 61 centers to wards the of 1996. There are 1800 hemodialysed (males 59%, females 41%) with and average age of 51 +/- 4 years. In about one third of the cases, the cause of the end stage renal failure remains unknown. However, chronic glomerulonephritis comes at the head of known causes (25%), followed by interstitial nephritis (19%). A temporary vascular access (catheter) was necessary in 81% of cases when dialysis has started in emergency in 61% of patients...

OBJECTIVE AND METHODS: An increasing number of diagnoses of pleural effusions (PE) have been made over the last 8 years in the Department of Internal Medicine of the Centre Hospitalier de Kigali, Rwanda. In order to determine the aetiology of PE and to examine its possible association with HIV-1 infection, we performed an aetiological work-up, including thoracocentesis and pleural punch biopsy, of all new patients with PE of undetermined aetiology referred to the Division of Pulmonary Diseases of the Department of Internal Medicine of the Centre Hospitalier de Kigali between 14 September 1988 and 16 October 1989...

Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is a clinical syndrome of primary chronic arthritis in childhood. JRA is subdivided into three subtypes according to the clinical picture within six months of the onset of the disease. The clinical picture of systemic onset type usually starts with a characteristic spiking fever. Children with this onset type, sometimes have pleursy, percarditis, myocarditis, generalyzed lymphnode swelling, hepatosplenomegaly and rheumatoid rash, but arthritis may not appear within the first few months...

Twenty-five patients, aged 5 months to 14 years, with acute bacterial pericarditis are reported. Thirteen (52 per cent) of the patients died. The presenting symptoms, associated illness and physical findings, bacteriology, and response to therapy are reviewed. Optimum therapy consists of intravenous administration of specific antibiotics combined with surgical drainage; 90 per cent of our patients treated in this fashion survived. Antibiotic therapy alone is usually inadequate, especially in the presence of significant effusion, and among our patients only three of 10 patients so treated survived...
