Title : A rare case of acute pericarditis with pericardial effusion due to coinfection of Coxsackie virus A and B: A case report and literature review


Pericarditis refers to an inflammatory process involving the heart, which can be due to a variety of infectious and non-infectious processes. We are presenting a case of a 59-year-old female with acute viral pericarditis due to a co-infection of coxsackie A and B virus, managed with pericardiocentesis, NSAIDs, colchicine, and steroids. Diagnosis of pericarditis is based on clinical manifestation and ECG findings; however, aetiology is still challenging.

What will audience learn from your presentation?

  • We intent to create awareness among clinicians about coxsackie virus being the culprit of the disease and should always be in the differential diagnosis.
  • Develop the skills to evaluate, diagnose and manage patients with pericarditis due to coinfection of coxsackie A and B.
