Stemming from Rheumatic Fever, Rheumatic Pericarditis is a heart condition. Rheumatic Fever is a disease that develops from an infection with A Streptococcus bacteria in which these bacteria begin as strep throat or scarlet fever and evolve into Rheumatic Fever if they are not treated. Most common in children between the ages of 5 to 15, Rheumatic Pericarditis is caused by the improper treatment or recurrence of Rheumatic Fever. Pericarditis is the inflammation of the sac surrounding the heart. The symptoms of Rheumatic Pericarditis include sharp chest pain, fever, chills, and fatigue. Rheumatic Pericarditis is treated with anti-inflammatory medications to help reduce the swelling of the sac, antibiotics will be used to help control the Rheumatic fever, and sometimes surgery to remove part of the sac.
