as a fatal complication after endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration.
Our review of the literature demonstrates that this is the first reported case of ISCA secondary to bacterial pericarditis
Previously rheumatic fever and bacterial pericarditis were the most common causes of pericardial effusion.
3%) cases of infectious etiology, bacterial pericarditis was seen in 6(17%) cases while tuberculosis was most likely cause in 4 (11.
Edwardsiella tarda, a member of the Enterobacteriaceae, was previously reported to cause severe disease in MRC toadfish, characterized by bacterial pericarditis
and multifocal subacute necrosis in several organs.
The first 10 years of my practice have also included a patient with vertebral osteomyelitis, two with primary biliary cirrhosis, one with an atrial myxoma, one with bacterial pericarditis
, one with an ocular melanoma, one with amyloidosis, and one with a dissecting thoracic aneurysm.
In addition, captive populations of adults have been affected by diseases such as bacterial pericarditis
, Flexibacter sp.
A new disease, bacterial pericarditis, which is caused by a gram negative bacterium, has caused mortalities in the Marine Resources Center (MRC).
Bacterial strains (n = 15) were isolated from individual infected toad fishes (n = 12) during the outbreak of bacterial pericarditis that occurred from July 1996 to April 1997 at the MRC.
At necropsy, 33% (8/24) of the fish with bacterial pericarditis exhibited swollen "coconut belly" abdomens that contained up to 140 ml of serosanguinous fluid that clotted when exposed to air [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1A OMITTED].
Bacterial pericarditis devastated the adult toadfish population held at the MRC over the winter of 1996-1997.
data) will allow us to permanently identify individual animals in future studies, which will address clinically significant changes in leucocyte percentages in response to stress, disease such as bacterial pericarditis
(4), and holding conditions.
