1,258 Possible Causes for Pericarditis, Pulmonary Fibrosis

  • Influenza

    […] influenzae, Streptococcus mitis, atypical pneumoniaes, Aspergillus) VAP (Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumannii, MRSA, E. coli) ARDS PE Extra-pulmonary Complications pericarditis[] This is a case of a 60-year-old man with chronic idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, with fever, arthralgias and rash characterised by extensive erythematous plaques on his limbs[] Myocarditis and pericarditis have been associated with influenza infections. [33] A review of avian influenza cases in 4 countries found that the clinical course progressed[]

  • Pneumonia

    Septicaemia, pericarditis, endocarditis, osteomyelitis, septic arthritis, cerebral abscess, meningitis (particularly in pneumococcal pneumonia).[] Her admission chest X-ray showed fine reticular shadowing, with an initial suspicion of pulmonary fibrosis.[] Fibrosis , Pulmonary Oedema Previous symptom Coughing Pneumonia is a tier 2 symptom.[]

  • Tuberculosis

    The patients may present with constrictive pericarditis or pericardial fluid accumulation leading to cardiac tamponade.[] Cystic fibrosis, other bacterial lung diseases and lung cancer were the main underlying pulmonary diseases.[] The result is a granulomatous pericarditis that can be hemorrhagic.[]

  • Hypereosinophilic Syndrome

    Previous evaluation revealed peripheral eosinophilia, pericarditis, and pneumonia.[] fibrosis occurs after prolonged disease and often accompanies cardiac fibrosis Bronchospasm and asthmatic symptoms are infrequent Rhinitis is sometimes a presenting symptom[] Cardiac involvement most commonly manifests as heart failure, intracardiac thrombus, arrhythmias, and pericarditis or very rarely as myocardial ischemia.[]

  • Cyclophosphamide

    Tocilizumab dramatically improved pericarditis, and glomerulonephritis was controlled after adding cyclophosphamide.[] Cyclophosphamide fibrosing nonspecific interstitial pneumonia idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis immunosuppressant therapy usual interstitial pneumonia Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis[] Congestive heart failure, pericarditis, and arrhythmias are well-known cardiac sequelae of high-dose cyclophosphamide therapy; however, high-grade atrioventricular block has[]

  • Limited Cutaneous Systemic Sclerosis

    […] haemodynamic data recorded from this patient suggested that pericardial fibrosis may be a major contributing predisposing factor to pericardial tamponade, while the cause of pericarditis[] Clinicians, therefore, must be aware that pulmonary interstitial fibrosis in patients with the CREST syndrome may represent a risk for lung cancer.[] […] disease, 5 fold increase of lung cancer (leading cause of mortality) - Renal (60-80%) -- renal disease and renal crisis, there is a significant increase with BP -Cardiac-- pericarditis[]

  • Nitrofurantoin

    An 89 year-old Caucasian woman weighing 60 kg with diastolic heart failure and a history of urosepsis, viral pericarditis, and atrial fibrillation arrived at the emergency[] Four cases of interstitial pulmonary fibrosis associated with nitrofurantoin therapy are analysed along with 45 other reported cases of this disease in order to review the[] The acute pulmonary toxicity presents with fever, leukocytosis, dyspnea, and nonproductive cough. Chronic nitrofurantoin use can lead to interstitial pulmonary fibrosis.[]

  • Microscopic Polyangiitis

    Discussion This 19-year-old man presented acutely with a vasculitic illness causing constitutional symptoms and pericarditis.[] Pulmonary fibrosis was seen to predate, be concomitant with, or occur after the diagnosis of MPA.[] Constitutional – weight loss, fever, myalgias Otorhinolaryngological – oral ulcers, epistaxis, sinusitis Renal – rapidly progressing glomerulonephritis Cardiovascular – pericarditis[]

  • Mixed Connective Tissue Disease

    The case was diagnosed as mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD) due to presence of swollen fingers, Raynaud's phenomenon, muscle weakness, positive anti-U1RNP antibody, pericarditis[] Interstitial lung disease, which is common in patients with mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD), can progress to severe pulmonary fibrosis.[] Pericarditis was the most common cardiac diagnosis with a prevalence of 30% and 43% in two prospective studies.[]

  • Silicosis

    We provided the first case having constrictive pericarditis concomitant with silicosis.[] In this study, we hypothesized that MUC1 deficiency would reduce susceptibility to pulmonary fibrosis in a mouse model of silicosis.[] The reasons for constrictive pericarditis can be idiopathic or viral (42%-49%), post-infectious (tuberculous or purulent pericarditis, 3%-6%), post-cardiac surgery (11%-37%[]
