Tuberculous pericarditis

The early stage of tuberculous pericarditis is cellulosic and bloody pericarditis, followed by pericardial effusion, followed by pericardial hypertrophy, which can turn into subacute stage or chronic stage, and some develop into pericardial narrowing. The early treatment of tuberculous pericarditis is of great importance to the prognosis. Once the diagnosis is clear, anti tuberculosis treatment or surgical treatment should be taken. Tuberculous pericarditis plays an important role in pericardial diseases in China, accounting for 21.3% ~ 35.8% of pericardial diseases. Active control of the prevalence of tuberculosis can significantly reduce the incidence rate of tuberculous pericarditis.
