The pericardium could be involved in a variety of clinical disorders. The imaging findings are not specific for an individual pathology in most of the cases; however, patient's clinical history may gu...
Erdheim-Chester Disease is a rare entity, classified as an inflammatory myeloid neoplasm, with an unknown incidence, occurring preferentially in men after 50 years of age. Classically, it has a multis...
Erdheim-Chester disease (ECD) is a rare form of non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis that presents potential impairment of the central nervous system (CNS). Frequent CNS impairment makes ECD a disease wo...
This CME review takes stock of the progress in the etiology, pathophysiology, diagnostics and treatment of pericarditis and pericardial effusion brought about by the publication of the 2nd European So...
The investigators want to understand more about what kinds of health problems are caused by Erdheim-Chester Disease (ECD), what happens as a result of different treatments for ECD, and how...
Background: - Erdheim Chester Disease (ECD) is a very rare disease in which abnormal white blood cells start growing and affect the bones, kidneys, skin, and brain. ECD can cause severe l...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of pericardial instillation of bleomycin as a sclerosing agent after pericardial drainage for lung cancer-associated malignant pericar...
This phase II trial studies the side effects and how well dabrafenib and trametinib work in treating patients with Erdheim Chester disease that have BRAF V600 gene mutations. Dabrafenib an...
The Second Investigation of the Management of Pericarditis (IMPI-2) Trial will compare the effectiveness and safety of complete percutaneous pericardial drainage facilitated by intraperica...
Fluid accumulation within the PERICARDIUM. Serous effusions are associated with pericardial diseases. Hemopericardium is associated with trauma. Lipid-containing effusion (chylopericardium) results from leakage of THORACIC DUCT. Severe cases can lead to CARDIAC TAMPONADE.
A rare form of non-Langerhans-cell histiocytosis (HISTIOCYTOSIS, NON-LANGERHANS-CELL) with onset in middle age. The systemic disease is characterized by infiltration of lipid-laden macrophages, multinucleated giant cells, an inflammatory infiltrate of lymphocytes and histiocytes in the bone marrow, and a generalized sclerosis of the long bones.
Inflammation of the PERICARDIUM from various origins, such as infection, neoplasm, autoimmune process, injuries, or drugs-induced. Pericarditis usually leads to PERICARDIAL EFFUSION, or CONSTRICTIVE PERICARDITIS.
A rare neoplasm of large B-cells usually presenting as serious effusions without detectable tumor masses. The most common sites of involvement are the pleural, pericardial, and peritoneal cavities. It is associated with HUMAN HERPESVIRUS 8, most often occurring in the setting of immunodeficiency.
A nonspecific hypersensitivity reaction caused by TRAUMA to the PERICARDIUM, often following PERICARDIOTOMY. It is characterized by PERICARDIAL EFFUSION; high titers of anti-heart antibodies; low-grade FEVER; LETHARGY; loss of APPETITE; or ABDOMINAL PAIN.
