Idiopathic Effusive Constrictive Pericarditis in an Adolescent Boy: A Rare Cause of Heart Failure with Diagnostic Difficulty
一名青少年發生特發性滲液性縮窄性心包炎:一例存在診斷困難的罕見病因導致心臟衰竭的病例報導

CY Chow, KS Lun


Abstract

We reported a 17-year-old adolescent with effusive constrictive pericarditis who presented with progressive heart failure. He was initially diagnosed to have hypereosinophilic syndrome with cardiac manifestation. Extensive workup showed no evidence of haematological malignancy or autoimmume disease. The constrictive pathology was later noted in echocardiography and cardiac catheterisation. Surgical pericardiectomy was curative.
