  • Friction rubs may be distinguished from a cardiac murmur by its changing character from heartbeat to heartbeat and as the person changes position.[ceufast.com]


  • Endocrinology was consulted for further workup and management of adrenal insufficiency of unclear etiology.[cureus.com]
  • It is concluded that in hospitalized patients with pericarditis, an extensive workup may not reveal the major etiologies, and the disease may be more complicated than previously thought.[jstage.jst.go.jp]

  • A routine fever workup was negative. She was discharged the following day. The patient was readmitted three months later with recurrent pleuritic chest pain, which did not improve with resumption of NSAID therapy.[the-hospitalist.org]

  • Pharmacology and Therapeutics for Dentistry, 6th Edition describes how to evaluate a patient’s health and optimize dental treatment by factoring in the drugs they take.[books.google.com]
  • 2 , 3 A few cases are considered as having an allergic hypersensitive reaction to 5-ASA. 4 According to medical literature, the incidence is low and described mainly as isolated cases, and can occur immediately after the start of or years after the treatment[academic.oup.com]
  • Treatment is with aspirin or NSAIDs.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • However, viral pericarditis almost always resolves without antiviral treatment.[wattletreecardiology.com.au]
  • Other Types of Treatment If you have serious complications from pericarditis, you may need treatments that require hospital stays.[heart.org]


  • The long-term prognosis was good, although 21.9% of the patients suffered from recurrent episodes of pericarditis.[jstage.jst.go.jp]
  • Though the child may be critically ill with a poor prognosis, the outlook is better than it was in preantibiotic days.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]
  • Prognosis of the disease is excellent, as severe complications are rare.[textbookofcardiology.org]
  • Possible difference in the histology, clinical features and prognosis between BL's with t (8; 14) and those with a variant translocation remains to be elucidated.[jstage.jst.go.jp]


  • Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology.[icd10coded.com]
  • Overview Pericarditis can be caused by both infectious and noninfectious etiologies.[pathwaymedicine.org]

  • Although the specific pathophysiology of pleuropericardial disease in patients with IBD remains unclear, the response to systemic steroids is usually adequate.[utsouthwestern.influuent.utsystem.edu]

  • Preliminary data have shown that it may be effective also in treatment of the index attack of pericarditis and the prevention of further recurrences.[clinicaltrials.gov]
  • Other times, more intense treatment is needed to prevent complications. Treatment may include medicines and, less often, procedures or surgery. You usually can't prevent acute pericarditis.[surgery.ucsf.edu]
