Abstract

AMADO-GARZON, Sandra B.  and  RUIZ-TALERO, Paula A. Myopericarditis as initial manifestation of adult-onset Still's disease. Rev. Colomb. Cardiol. [online]. 2015, vol.22, n.4, pp.201-204. ISSN 0120-5633.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rccar.2015.04.005.

We report the case of a 25 year-old man with persistent fever, leukocytosis, myalgias and arthralgias; in whom myopericarditis associated with acute heart failure was documented. After an exhaustive study of fever of unknown origin he was diagnosed as adult Still's disease.

Keywords : Myocarditis; Heart failure; Adult.
