Resumen

LUSTIG, Nicole et al. Constrictive pericarditis as a serious and rare presentation of systemic lupus erythematosus: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2014, vol.142, n.8, pp.1065-1068. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872014000800015.

Constrictive Pericarditis (CP) is an unusual disease. Its most common causes are idiopathic or secondary to cardiac surgery. Less frequently it is caused by connective tissue diseases. We report a 30 years old woman hospitalized due to progressive dyspnea, chest pain and signs of right sided heart failure. During her stay, a Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) was diagnosed. The echocardiogram suggested a CP and the diagnosis was confirmed by cardiac catheterization. Pericardiectomy was successfully performed. The biopsy confirmed a nonspecific chronic pericarditis, with extensive fibrosis and absence of caseating granulomas. The patient had a satisfactory recovery.

Palabras clave : Lupus erythematosus, systemic; Pericarditis, constrictive; Thoracic surgery.
