For many individuals, the first acute episode of pericarditis is just the beginning of their journey. Some patients continue to experience multiple recurrences and may face both physical and mental challenges regardless of treatment. Managing recurrent pericarditis (RP) can also be a challenge for clinicians because most commonly prescribed traditional therapies for RP only address symptom relief. At this mini session, you will review the diagnosis of RP, the underlying pathophysiology that drives the repetitive cycle of recurrence and a treatment for RP.
