ABSTRACT
Autoimmune pericarditis often rises complex diagnosis and management problems. It is often characterized by a recurrent course and can be found by itself or as a part of classical autoimmune diseases. The prognosis of autoimmune pericarditis is worse than that of infectious pericarditis, as these patients need to have a pericardiocentesis or a pericardial fenestration done more often. Colchicine, intravenous gamma globulins, azathioprine and interleukin 1 receptor inhibitors were proven useful in some cases.
