  • Pleurisy

    […] pain Pleural and/or pericardial friction rub; decreased breath sounds Chest radiography: may reveal pleural effusion PFA: exudative effusion Elevated ESR, leukocytosis Electrocardiographic[aafp.org] WBC, fibrinogen) Positive mutation analysis for MEFV gene Post–cardiac injury syndrome† Recent myocardial infarction, cardiac procedure, or chest trauma Fever, dyspnea, pleuropericardial[aafp.org]

  • Acute Pleuropericarditis

    This patient developed the pleuropericardial friction rub after dialysis was instituted, so it did not appear to be a uremic manifestation.[cjasn.asnjournals.org] […] pain Pleural and/or pericardial friction rub; decreased breath sounds Chest radiography: may reveal pleural effusion PFA: exudative effusion Elevated ESR, leukocytosis Electrocardiographic[aafp.org] Our patient had a pericardial friction rub that remains unexplained.[cjasn.asnjournals.org]

  • Pericarditis

    The most common sign of acute pericarditis is sharp, stabbing chest pain. The pain usually comes on quickly. It often is felt in the middle or left side of the chest or over the front of the chest. You also may feel pain in one or both shoulders, the neck, back, and abdomen.

Dear Editor, We read with great interest the work by Masek and Levis published in a recent issue of The Permanente Journal. 1 They describe a classical electrocardiographic evolution[…][thepermanentejournal.org]

  • Hemopericardium

    The case of a premature infant ventilated for hyaline membrane disease and complicated by recurrent tension pneumopericardium requiring surgical drainage is reported. The infant improved but developed a tension hemopericardium following the removal of the surgical drain. He had cardiac arrest, responded to[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Post-Infarction Pericarditis

    Clinically, post-myocardial infarction syndrome is manifested by fever, malaise, chest pain, and the presence of a pericardial and possibly pleuropericardial friction rub.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It should be suspected in any patient with pleuropericardial pain. A pericardial friction rub may or may not be present.[link.springer.com]

  • Polyarthritis

    For instance, fine inspiratory rales suggest interstitial lung disease, a complication of RA; pleuropericardial friction rubs occur with lupus; and parotid gland enlargement[aafp.org]

  • Acute Polyarticular Gouty Arthritis

    For instance, fine inspiratory rales suggest interstitial lung disease, a complication of RA; pleuropericardial friction rubs occur with lupus; and parotid gland enlargement[aafp.org]

  • Seronegative Arthritis

    For instance, fine inspiratory rales suggest interstitial lung disease, a complication of RA; pleuropericardial friction rubs occur with lupus; and parotid gland enlargement[aafp.org]

  • Viral Arthritis

    For instance, fine inspiratory rales suggest interstitial lung disease, a complication of RA; pleuropericardial friction rubs occur with lupus; and parotid gland enlargement[aafp.org]
