A Patient Presented with High Fever and Bloody Pericardial Effusion (Hemorrhagic Pericarditis)
We report a case of hemorrhagic pericarditis caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection of the pericardium which is an extremely rare diagnosis. The literature review showed that there were rare cases of tuberculosis-causing hemorrhagic pericarditis, but the diagnosis was made either postmortem or not firmly diagnosed. Our patient was diagnosed as hemorrhagic pericarditis due to M. tuberculosis, he was treated and was discharged.
